Hot times call for smallmouth on the big d

Well got out over the weekend for some smallmouth fishing on the big D. (Delaware river). On Saturday I met up with a couple of guys from my t.u. Chapter to float a section of the gap. The fishing was slow but we managed several species and some good size small mouth. During the float we also saw bald eagles and black bears. Yup two black bears and a mother and juvenile bald eagle. The delaware water gap is certainly a beautiful place. I am glad I live so close.

Yesterday I got out in the evening with Fredy of Spain for some smallie action. We hit up a area of the big d I call shoe Eddie. The Eddie there always seems to collect the lost shoes of tubers and boaters. It wasn't long at all before I had a nice smallie on and a short time later Fredy got himself a really nice one. All black wooly buggers were the ticket.


  1. A great weekend of fishing indeed!

  2. Wow, a welcome change from the trout.
