I was bank fishing there on friday the 1st. It was a good thing that I wasn't in a boat because the waves were HUGE. I was out there fishing for Stripe. I only caught one on minnows. My uncle was using chicken liver and cought two Stripe. He was getting a lot of hits and finally just ran out of liver and went to Nightcrawlers. I did catch several nice Bream on Nightcrawlers.
I caught two little Smallmouths on minnows. I had a 1/4 ounce bell weight on the bottom of my line and a treble hook about four inches above it. Since a lot of my minnows had died, I was using two dead minnows with a live one. My uncle caught a Largemouth doing this to.
A guy next to me caught a 14-1/2 inch Smallmouth on a live Crawdad.
Good luck fishing for those Smallmouths!!!
