Final Smallmouth Trip of 2012

Type: Freshwater
Region: Western
Location: Potomac River

With time off before the holidays, my friend Steve and I decided to try to catch a few Potomac River smallmouth. The river was high and very cloudy, and with water temperatures in the 30s, a bit colder than we wanted. We were pleasantly surprised, however, to find the bass pretty active prior to the impending snow storm. Using tubes and hair jigs very slowly crawled over the bottom, we landed nearly 30 smallmouth between 13 and 17 inches…a great trip to end the season!
