I want to take my son up for some of those big smallmouth in the bay but I've never been on the water there and have no idea where to start or what to use. We have a boat and tons of tackle, he is only 8 but refuses to use anything other than artificials for bass
The Jr. Club will be up shortly for a tournament. The kids have a blast. Any tubes, senko, jig. At times spinnerbaits and chatterbaits do well. It all depends on the grass. And the stages of the spawn. Make sure you are constantly checking your line for nicks and frays. It really is an awesome fishery.
