10 minutes start now! How many can we catch? We've got rising water, heavy flows, and murky conditions. The smallmouth and schooling near running water and there are a TON of them!
We located this school earlier in the day but with the water rising 3 inches an hour there was no telling how many could be pouring into the area. Since we'd already found them and covering water wasn't an issue we settled on the Ned Rig.
Both equipped with a Ned Rig on light line we began making repetitious casts to the same area to create a feeding frenzy. Once they started biting it got serious! They were biting on every cast, sometimes two at a time.
While these aren't the biggest fish in the world it shows how aggressively bass can school and feed together. Below is a breakdown of the gear we were using.
