Carl Guffey - 1/7/2012 5:37 PM It just seems to me that anything under half of the state record weight is not a trophy.

 

I would say that it depends on the situational variables.  The lake, tackle, personal goals, etc.  Everyone might not be the huge fish expert that you are.

Whether it is caught in a ditch or Dale Hollow a three pounder is still a three pounder. The difference is when you do something to give certain fish the advantage to grow and be vital and then capture the result. Even then, that fish is still a good fish and not a trophy. If you set a goal to capture small fish that is all you will catch and land. Spend the time needed to learn about the prize, then go looking for only the very best. That is smallmouth fishing at it's best.

I do have to say I am really surprised at the interest my fish has gotten.

I have not caught as many Smallmouth as some of the Smallmouth experts around here,but i have caught quiet a few and none of them have been over 5lbs.So when i do catch one over 5lbs it will be a trophy fish to me,i guess i have low goals when it comes to Smallmouth fishing.

blazer - me too. If I could catch a bunch of 13-14" every time out I would be happy. Those smaller ones actually seem to jump a whole lot more. Sure I'd like a few bigger ones, but I would never complain a bit. Something about watching them take to the air 4-6 times just gets my adrenaline going

Now you're going to give me advice on smallmouth fishing?     Save your time and trouble.  I don't need any advice in that department.  I learned from the best and have caught and targeted them for many years.  Probably more years than you are old.  So you can quit with the "expert" attitude.  It doesn't impress me in the least. 

Maybe if I go back and read every post you've made on here, then some day I'll be as good as you?
