These last few days were kind of weird. Either I forgot how to catch large bass or they forgot how to eat. I sure didn't forget how to catch large panfish though. Monday I went to the river hoping for hex hatch that never really materialized. I caught a lot of little bass on top. I mean a lot. But Tuesday would shatter that.
On the lake yesterday I caught a stupid number of smallmouth. And not one was over a pound. Don't get me wrong, even a 1/2 pound smallmouth fights very well, but I'm looking for those 5-6 pound fish.
The panfish, on the other hand, did not disappoint. caught some really good sized rockbass, white perch, and various sunfish for this particular body of water.

One thing noticed was that every fish seemed to be keyed in on midges. Most smallmouth I caught had throats full of adult midges, sometimes they were pouring out the gills. Looks like I might need to bring a lighter rod and some gnats next time!
