A goose had a nest in the debris piled up under a bridge.
The Smallies on the Yadkin last trip would not hit my usual go to lure of a Chartreuse spinnerbait and I had to switch to white. So, on this outing I started off with white. No hits. I put the chartreuse spinnerbait back on and the hits came immediately. The lure of choice today was a Booyah Blade 3/8 oz Chartreuse Spinnerbait. First a little guy.
Then this nice colored Smallie
The big one for the day going 18 inches. She was a fighter.
Not Bad. 2 smallies 18 plus inches in 2 days.
The surprise of the day. I have caught these here but not on a spinnerbait.
I caught ~10 smallies and the lone white bass. All caught on the spinnerbait except 1 smallie on a tube. I had the 18 incher. 2 right at 16 (bad pics) couple at 14 inches and the rest smaller. A very decent 4 hours on the water. Note: A look at my last smallie outing and I was not wearing a life jacket last outing. This outing I had my life jacket on from the get go as the water was very swift. Evidently the upstream dam is letting water out. Also, the last outing I was surrounded by 4 other canoers and yakers and I was alone on this trip. Always use common sense on the water . Tight lines Mack
