Day Two - Tuesday.
We were up at 5:30, and headed for the ramp at historic Map Rock along an old Indian trail along the Snake River. We launched into calmer waters than yesterday. A short trip across the river and we were immediately into fish, with some very aggressive smallmouth coming to the boat. After a good warm up, we headed upstream and hit the jackpot. We anchored at the head of a riffle and proceeded to nail a fish or a hard strike on almost every cast. These fish were hitting the fluke or a Z-man Hula Stikz bait. Roger was on fire and we couldn't even stop for muffins with Fudge.

Finally we took a break and drank some coffee and shared our muffins with the loyal dog guide. We ran upstream about a mile to another island riffle where we again anchored and started hauling in the fish. These were not trophy fish but great fighting 12-14" young studs who stripped line from your dragm jumped multiple times, and fought great. When things finally slowed down and we decided to call it a day my counter totaled 110 fish. It was only 12:00 noon, and by the time we got home the pizza and cold beer would taste great.

Sounds as if there wasn't enough time between catches to take pictures.


Must have smallmouth fix.

It's a LMB, BTW, and in NE many of us Walleye fanatics refer to LBMs as Green Carp. HA! :P
