Nice fish , 8MM...

Those smallmouths are awesome fighters, and are my favorite game fish... I've always said that if you tied a 3 pound smallmouth and a 5 pound largemouth tail to tail, the smallie would drag the largemouth around backwards until it's scales fell off.......

I wholeheartedly agree, Chuck...

I'm fortunate to live in an area with a wealth of good smallmouth fishing...Western NY's Finger lakes, The Great Lakes and all of the major river systems have plenty of smallies, including the river that runs through my little town.. I release many more than I keep, especially the big breeders, but I eat my share of 12-14 inchers, and in my opinion, they are delicious... The only fish that taste better to my palate are panfish, such as yellow perch and my favorite, bluegills...

Lat time I was at the finger lakes I left my tackle box on the shoreline..loaded with my best lures..My wife said the lake was called Cayuga Lake

I used to eat those 12- 14 inchers..really tasty..

Chuck..Probably some lucky feller has been catching fish with your favorite lures for years.....

Cayuga is far enough from my home that I don't fish it a LOT, but I have fished it a number of times..It's the biggest of the Finger Lakes ( appx 40 miles long) and has a wonderful diversity of species..The relatively shallow north end has a wonderful warm water fishery, with big largemouths and northern pike, as well as lots of panfish like bluegills, pumpkinseeds, perch and crappies, plus bullheads and channel cats...The southern 2/3 of the lake is a great coldwater fishery, with big lake trout ( some 10 to 20 pounds) rainbows, browns and a solid population of landlocked salmon, as well as smallmouths, perch , smelt, and other species..

The lakes closest to my home are Keuka and Seneca, so these are the waters I fish most often...
