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.
