The lake has warmed up sufficiently now, and I felt that it was necessary to fish it after my casting class was done. I have caught quite a few really nice smallmouth right off the shore in that spot and today was no exception. he first was the bigger of the two I caught, and it slammed a double deceiver in five feet of water.
The second fish went for a small woolly bugger stripped in very quickly. Another very nice, healthy smallmouth. Two great bass to start out the season on the lake. I will catch bigger ones within the coming months.
