just wanted to let you guys know ( again ) that kent lake has been producing good smallmouth. went out friday and got 8 fish over 14" with most in the 2 - 2.5 lb range and a couple 3, 3.5, and a 4lber. saturday was a bit better with 9 fish over 14" and most fish were over 3 lbs with 2 fish in the 4 lb range. sunday was big fish day with 3 smallmouth in the 4 lb range and a 16" largemouth that went 3.9lbs, fattest green i have ever seen. the rest were in the 3-3.5 lb class with only a couple 2 lbers. this was all in 3 hours. this lake is hot right now. most of the smallies are hitting a crawfish pattern storm midwart and all largemouth and some of the smallies ( including 2 of the biggest ) were caught on a green and yellow bleeding rattle trap ( 17.75" smallie at 4.0 lbs) and my friend got a 19.25" smallmouth weighing 4.2 lbs on an xps rattle bait in bass pattern. fish are still hanging on points in about 8 feet of water and in connecting bays in 4 to 6". get out there. with saturday being an exception, there havent been more than 3 boats out everytime i have went. heres a pic of the 17.75" smallie, its the biggest one we got a pic of before the digicam died.
