The first day of Summer is just two days away but it has felt like Summer for a couple weeks now. With air temps in the 90s the smallmouth bass fishing has heated up! I have had two 19 inch bass landed this week with clients and one just shy of 20 inches. Big bass have been quite visible cruising shallow banks looking for a bite to eat. Poppers and sliders have done the trick with the bigger bass in the skinny water. Topwater fishing has just gotten started and looking forward to the rest of Summer to catch smallies on the surface.
