Had two guys we started at 8am till 2pm did split shot fathead on first cast it was fish on and the first 4lb plus smallmouth was in the net. We worked the area in 21 to 30ft pulling fatheads behind boat and both guys were on taking turns landing big smallmouth as I was the net master and we went back and forth when the bite slowed we made move. As a little wind picked up we drifted from 16ft to 29ft we went a long way but fish on with a double. One landed one lost kept drifting nothing redrift caught a couple more redrift a couple more redrift miss two make move set up in 40ft drifting into 16ft drifted forever and finally fish on little pike land and move. Start in 36ft drifting into 24ft took a while but hey the net and another big girl is caught resume drift nothing move start in 20ft drifting into 26ft after a couple more fish and drifts we make last move. Start in 18ft drifting into 32ft a couple more and the day was done. It is amazing what a hook split shot and fathead can do. Thanks guys was a blast netting big bass.

Had a hubby and hunny from 9am till 2pm we started with fathead and split shot we drifted from 16ft to 40ft. First drift was a long and slow with no bites we move same deal but this time I get first fat smallmouth then we have a miss make move next drift is a dud we move this time it is the hunnys turn a couple times awesome fun. We redrift she does it again we both miss ours the wind picks up we move less wind and it takes a while but the hubby hooks a big girl gets her to boat and she jumps dives and is gone. We make last move and we all get in game only to have the hunny land the last of the day. They were 26ft to 32ft and when you found them they would bite. Thank you two gotta love them smallmouth.
