  • French Broad River

    Gracie got to visit for a little while today and first thing she asked was if we could go fishing.Thought I would take her to try the French Broad since its just about 10 minutes from my house.She didn't catch anything,but with the fast moving water its hard for a kid to fish without constantly being hung up.It is a beautiful river though and holds a lot of smallmouth.She had a good time and got to get her feet wet,so I guess it turned out good,fish or no fish,lol.This river is much bigger and wider than the catawba,as you can see in the pics

    NICE
    Oh Yeah!!! This looks nice!! How was you fishing? Fishing Queen? LOL The way we catch Smallies in the New River is in Water such as this that is swift with current..I toss a hellgrammite or a Grub into the swift water and let it drift down and BAM!!! The Rock bass are FUN FUN FUN to catch and fight against the current but the smallies will test ya with their acrobatics and throw the lure alot...They just know how to turn and get that hook out...Fascinating!!!

    fishing
    I like to get out a little on the the rocks and throw out,but couldn't do that with Gracie.One slip and she'd be gone.She was using a nightcrawler.I used to fish this river all the time,but haven't in a while.Those smallmouth in Catawba will put up a fight like that.They are fun to catch.

    Rub it in!!!
    Yeah, I know!! I got that part, What I didn't get was a GPS location or even a Address...I promise if anyone comes along I will break my line and just stand there like I haven't got a clue as to what I'm doing...I don't want to steal your river side celebrity status, I just want to catch a few Small mouth Bass lol and every time you catch 1 I will scream real loud like I'm being chased by a butterfly so everyone can see you Catch another one....That's just the type of Guy I am lol

    My son caught this Monster Warmouth in our local honey hole the other day. I told him right where to throw the bait (net?maybe!LMSO) and he fought this enormous pig of a fish for a whole lot of minutes! It was very intense.
