|Fall is a great time to fish for smallies. They become eager again as the water cools. It's a bittersweet time. The action is good but there's only a couple of months left before it gets too cold.
The woods have that autumn smell and heat rises from the water in the form of fog.Each day and each fish is savored.
The lazy days of summer are gone and there's an urgency to get out on the water.
