Default Re: Is an 8 wt too much rod for smallmouth?

An 8 wt would certainly work, but when I fish for smallmouth I use either a 5 or 6, but then again like I said in the other thread I don't fish for smallmouth that much. My fishing is limited to a private pond in CO that my son knows the owner and has permission to fish on, so that is where we take the grandson fishing. The pond is loaded with smallmouth and crappie which always makes for a fun afternoon of fishing. The biggest fish is probably 16" so a 5 or 6 wt works perfect, the streamers or poppers we throw aren't the really large sizes.
