Windy Day Smallmouth!

Windy Day Smallmouth!
John's Smallmouth

John Burghardt

Mullica Hill New Jersey



Fishing on Clear Lake Ontario 6/26/12. Wind was blowing with gust up to 15. We anchored in 12-14ft of water on a hump and casting into 25ft water,letting the line fall freely. I was using a Gary Yamamto 3" white Senko on a Bass Pro Shops 1/16oz Flickin Shimmy hook attached to 10lb. Green Excel mono. The bass were hitting the senko as it fell to about a 20 ft. depth. We caught several Bass until we ran out of senkos. This was my biggest smallmouth. Nobody believed that we caught bass in the middle of the lake in the wind.
