Soft Swimbaits (Sm/Md)
Fish the edge of the shoals for post spawn smallies. I did best staying on top of the shoal and casting the swimbait off the edge. Key was letting the swimbait sink to the bottom or close and swimming it up the edge.
In the late summer while most anglers focus their time deep, there is a good percentage of bass that stay shallow on rocky reefs. Top baits like Zara Spooks or Rapala X-Pops work great to entice big smallmouth. The key is to find good grass in the area with bait activity. Position your casts to run on the inside weedline for best results.
Targeting smallmouth bass in the fall time. Looking for schools of bait in 15'-18' and slow rolling the umbrella rig through them from all angles. Key tips: use the 3.3" keitech's on the outside hooks and the off color 3.8" keitech on the main hook
