The quest went to the Merrimack River is search of new fish, such as carp, walleye, redbreast sunfish. When we arrived at the river we spooked several fish from the shallow pools that were lit by the morning sun. They were smallmouth bass (Micropterus dolomieu) and the place was loaded with them.
|Perfect habitat for smallmouth in this stretch of Merrimack River. Rocks, current, and pools.|
|We were not the only ones who thought so.|
|The Lure, 3.5 inches|
|The fish, 11 inches|
|Dave has caught bigger ones|
