Drift boat is showing signs of bumping into a few rocks the past couple weeks but its been worth it.  The big smallmouth bass have been keeping myself and my anglers on our toes.  With a well placed cast in the shade you may find your popper disappearing and strong pull on the end of your line.  Quality bass like 16 inches and up are on the look out for their next floating meal.  Trent landed his personal best at 21 inches yesterday and Tom hooked and landed more nice bass than he has seen in years today.  If you want to get in on catching some nice bass with topwater flies you have two more months.  The best fishing of the year could be coming but its been damn good for big fish so far this summer.DSC_1741 DSC_1719
