small mouths from harriet island?

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys, wondering if anybody has ever caught any small mouths down on Harriet Island. I have gone down there a few times but never had any luck. I have never really fished the river much so I'm pretty clueless. I tried tossing a heavy jig in there but the current still seemed to over power it. I thought i may have heard some talk catching them from rasberry(navy) island? Any info will help. Thanks.

instead try going upstream, like near lilydale park and upstream to the ford dam. cast some crankbaits and cover some ground, you'll get some

I don't know if you are in a boat or not but I like throwing flukes in the river from shore, they get caught up less than jigs, you can work them slow or fast, top water or closer to the bottom. Also don't be afraid to cast into brush and tree limbs. Don't rule current out altogether but look for slack water and eddys, smallmouth tend to relate to the current seams more than directly in current in my experience.

    • I gave up trying to watch it. I think the guys dog filmed it with a Go-pro strapped to his head. 
    • Bernie has not a lick of common sense. He appeals mainly to those fuzzy-brained dreamers and of course that includes many of today's youth,   who despite having great school systems, cannot learn much more than how to operate a cell-phone. A thoughtful politician can dream when he's having a snort or sitting in a duck blind or golfing but when the tires hit the road he's gotta function within some realistic parameters.  Bernie can't do that. Nothing personal Bernie, but it's time to go home and sit down-the election is over and nobody will be interested in you next time.
    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
