Haven’t had much time to get out and fish much this summer due to the Ironman training, but am thinking about trying to get out here in the next couple weeks. Thought I’d try something new and hit one of the local rivers for some smallmouth action. Haven’t fished for them before in this setting and wonder what would be a good starting tactic. Basic twister and a jig or stickbait like a Rapala? Figure that be a good a place to start as any. Ideas from others?
