I love the shot that ran with this week’s Fishing Report in The Roanoke Times. It featured young Stone Harding holding a lure with two smallmouth bass attached to it.
How can you not love smallmouths?
I was just up in smallmouth heaven, upper New York. I could almost smell Lake Champlain, a monster smallmouth factory, but couldn’t get over there to fish due to duties with the Outdoor Writers Association of America conference. One of these days I’m actually going to get up there to fish.
Next week’s fishing report will be the final of the season before the winter hiatus. That one always tends to be a looking-ahead kind of report.
There is a lot of good fishing to look forward to in the fall. But with many of us moving on to hunting, the pressure really drops off. Of course that’s a good thing.
So, who plans to fish much over the next few months? And what will you be chasing?
