I wish I could figure smallies out too. Most of the lakes I fish have a decent population but I rarely catch over one or two. I'm usually targeting largemouth and hit one on a jig or crankbait during the day. I've caught several on a Carolina rigged lizard or creature type bait too but they are few and far between. I catch way more at night during this time of year than I do all year stroking a jig or slow rolling a big Ledgebuster type spinner bait. They are generally 3lb+ fish too. Loads of fun right there. They'll straighten a spinnerbait out in a heartbeat. It seems that since the grass is coming on stronger on KY Lake that I catch fewer smallmouth but the largemouth are absolutely dynamite.

Sounds about identical to my situation. I've caught a couple before on c-rigs and crankbaits, just fishing. I wasn't targeting smallmouth, but I happened to catch this one on a shaky head which I knew I was capable of landing a smallie by using that. I've noticed more grass on Pickwick also. I will definately try the spinnerbait tactic here soon. Our bass club is fishing our July tourny at Pickwick on July 19th and it's a night tourny. We fish from 9 a.m. til 6 a.m.
