A Quick Trip and a Quick Report :)

I'll keep this short. Dad and I hit the river for a quick afternoon trip a few days ago... The water was low, clear, and very warm--a perfect afternoon for wet wading.

We targeted a semi-deep stretch of water that has some nice structure in it, and we fished mainly weightless soft plastic jerkbaits. Luckily the smallmouth cooperated. We didn't catch a bunch of fish, but we did manage double digits between the two of us... with a few pretty nice ones mixed in! There were some great surface strikes too, which is what I love the most about summertime fishing.

Other than our nice little afternoon trip to the river, I don't have much else to share with you this week. I fished a couple of midnight sessions, hoping for some hybrid stripers or largemouth... but all I got was the skunk. Thank the Lord it's August, and in a few weeks we will be seeing signs of fall... I'm looking forward to it :)

Hope you enjoy the pics!
