Thread: Little frustrating

  1. #1

    Default Little frustrating

    Hot a sunny on the main lake and not to many smallmouth were coming up to play.Towards dusk the smallies were going nuts, busting baby kiacks on the surface.I tried 3/4 different top water flies and not even a splash from a fish.I figured a gurgler would work the best but nothing...
    Gave up and went up steam, where getting some power pro out the water, helped me catch my biggest smallie of the evening.

    I sometimes believe in Karma or at least it's fun to think about.
    I thought I knew how to get the youtube picture without the link...forgot

    Nope, gloomis shorestalker 7wt, Ross fly start reel.
    First year going fly only and I'm used to bringing the fish right in with bait casting gear.
    I know this rod is alittle heavy and I'm looking at maybe trying a 4wt(+\-) one.
    Really want the one in the classified section, held back though.
