I poured some swimbaits yesterday and decided to do a field test today. They are hand poured in open molds. They are the 3.3" size. So decided to fish only those today instead of my usual 2.8 Keitechs. Seems like every time I go fishing lately it's a brutal post front bluest bird day. Got my usual late start at around 10:30. On my second cast a decent fish slammed the bait hard and caught a decent smallmouth. The fish were biting and I caught five in the first 30 minutes. The first color I tried was Live Green. I came up with that color and named it about 30 years ago. It was the best color today. The bite slowed but I kept catching one here and there. Then I started getting the nips and grabs. After about six in a row I rigged up a pearl one with the paddle cut off and got bit right away. Caught the two in the photos on that. Nothing to write home about but good for me. That smallmouth was sooo strong! Had 12 when I stopped for lunch at around 1:10. I caught #13 right after lunch but only caught two more by the time I quit at 3:45. Clicked 15 on the day, all smallmouth but three. Saw the little fox on the dam. Not sure what kind. Water was 71º-72º.
