We had some much needed rain this week. It was starting to get crispy in the yard and even though I hate mowing grass I would rather see it green than brown. With a cold front and steady rain I rescheduled my remaining trips for the week. Sat down at the vice yesterday to whip out some sliders for the smallmouth bass to munch on this summer. I love sliders for bass during the summer months. They look buggy and you can fish them dead drift with a twitch here and there. They get the job done day in and day out for me and my clients in the hot months. Heading to the beach for vacation with the family this coming week and looking forward to get in some fishing for myself after redfish. When I get back I’ll be back after the smallies on Virginia’s beautiful rivers.
