FINALLY!!! My first River Smallmouth! I gave myself a birthday present today, I left work early went to BPS and picked up my fishing license, quick stop at home for my gear, then to Whitewater River. My first cast ended up w/ a birdsnest and a half hour long talk w/ my late Grandfather and his fisherman's spirit my next cast ended up with a nice strike from this guy. Talk about feeling like Tommy Boy. Had the biggest grin on my face.
Might have been a dink in Smallie terms but was a keeper to me!
