It was really windy today on the lake. Sometimes that leads to exceptional walleye fishing. Today wasn't good in that sense, but I got three species to take a clouser. The smallmouth were smacking the fly as it got caught in swells, reminding me of watching bluefish attacking bait right at the beach. The best part was while wade fishing the sandbars because the fish usually followed the fly right to me. Non were very big. Every one, actually, was about the size of the one pictured here. I haven't found any of those big monster smallmouth yet this year. On calmer days when I can safely kayak I will probably be able to find some willing to nail a popper.
