    Caught good numbers with a simple hop and drag technique. I tried other small JDM finesse swimbaits but the GobyZ was what they wanted. Caught many fish stacked up together in the deepest water I could find not in direct current but next to it.

    The little spotty is a great jig. The baby goat is one of my favorite trailers for it as well. Paired up they can mimic a craw or a small baitfish like a Sculpin. This pair looks nice on the swim as well. One of my main any time of the year baits. I caught all my biggest Smallmouth on the Saint Croix this past summer with this pairing. The Little Spotty has been the best jig I have ever used at not getting hung up and has a good hook up and land ratio. Tossed the Gobius around a bit as well for the first time. Its a Dark sleeper knock off obviously but maybe out performs the Sleeper with hook up ratio from first experience with it. Time will tell if it replaces the Dark Sleeper for me one of the all time Smallmouth baits in my experience.

      Minnows

    Usually I use sucker minnows in the 3-4 inch range but today I decided to use suckers in the 4-7 inch range and it payed off. I got this 20 incher and a few other really nice ones great way to end the season
