Winter Smallmouth

Type: Freshwater
Region: Western
Location: Upper Potomac River

My good friend Kevin Gladhill and I fished the upper Potomac River over the weekend for smallmouth bass. Warmer air over the 39 degree water made for a beautiful foggy morning until the sun burned through. It took light jigs fished very slowly to tempt the lethargic bass. We landed about a dozen nice smallmouth between 13 and 19 inches and lost a few more before gusty 30 mph winds cut the day short.
