Good job. I'm hoping to get my first of the year soon.

That settles it...I haven't caught a smallie in 20 plus years since I left Ohio and moved to Colorado. Now, Montana is starting to have some pretty good smallie fishing....and this post is motivating me to go get one!! I know those things fight well.

They are bucket biology. Last year someone caught a 7.5 lb one out of Flathead lake. Many smaller lakes around the Hwy 2 area now have them. So, invasive species. I am going to do my part to capture them for pictures!! They were stocked in some lakes but they have been moved around extensively.

I grabbed my rod and streamer box and hit one of my favorite NJ rivers in search of big brown trout this weekend and ended up landing my 1st smallie of 2020 instead!20200531_105132.jpg
