Retired since 2008, try to fish 2-3 times a week. I love to tie jigs for all species but I fish for crappie the most with bass #2. I hate to admit it but my biggest redear sunfish weighed more than my biggest smallmouth bass. My biggest weighed smallmouth was 3-10 from Big River in 1986. Biggest redear was 4-9 from Lake Havasu on May 17, 2015. Caught a 3-2 on the next cast so had two redear weighing 7-11 in about five minutes.Definitely the fishing highlight of my life so far. I hope to get a bigger smallmouth one day. I have caught three bass over 8lbs. fishing city park lakes.
