Meramac below Scott's Ford on 8/10

I fished the meramac below Scotts Ford Yesterday / Friday.  I got on the river about midday and fishing was slow. The water seemed dingy as well.  Later in the day I started seeing action and ended up with about 25 smallmouth.  Nothing huge but a handful of 15 and 16 inch fish.  I really wanted  a small mess of google=-eye.  That didn't happen. I caught plenty, but most were under 8 inches. I finally boated a few over 8 inches, but it was late in the evening and I know I wouldn't have a mess so I released them all.  I stay off the river on the weekends due to the crazy's.  However, I'm beginning to think Fridays aren't great either, if you want a quiet time. By Friday evening, the party-goers are all arriving, so I believe my new fishing days will be more in the middle of the week instead. Still, it was a good day with a lot of fish hauled in.

Sunday's and Monday's seem like good days to avoid river rats, although if you're bank fishing you may find yourself picking up after those crazy rats more than fishing.

 

Sunday's are not good on the meramac.  Way too many people and jet boats to fish.

Ah, guess there's way more traffic up that way. I'm down stream between hwy 21 and 55 typically, might see an occasional boat or two but not always. Friday evenings and Saturday's seem to be the busiest times but even at that I might see 3-5 water craft in a few hours.
