Finding joy in the outdoors since 1988
During the smallmouth post spawn period while the water temperatures are down or fishing a cool creek I love to utilize terrestrials. One of my most visual and yet effective terrestrials has been the black foam beetle. I set-up the presentation by placing the beetle near tall grass or overhanging vegetation to give the appearance of "Oh crap I fell in the water" where hopefully a smallie is waiting and thinking "Heck yeah another beetle fell in the water!" For the beginner stock up with 3 or 4 to keep in your warm water box this June.
