I fished an inside weed edge today that sat in about 4' of water that was holding both large and smallmouth bass. I believe there could have been some rock in the area as well, though I'm not certain if they were boulders or just some rock chunks.

What I found most interesting is that the smallmouth were most active during the afternoon and the largemouth really turned on when the sun was setting. As well, the smallies really preferred a very slow popping retrieve whereas the largemouth were hitting a very aggressive retrieve.

My setup today was a 7' MF Daiwa Tatula spinning rod matched with a Daiwa Procyon which was spooled with 20lbs Seaguar Smackdown braid with a 2' long piece of 10lbs Seaguar Blue Label Fluorocarbon leader. The Rapala Skitter Pop in frog finish did all the damage today.

Was a nice day to be out and about, looking forward to more days like this as summer progresses.

nice sunny day and a couple nice fish welldone! I am always amazed when both are in the same area, I guess at some point they intertwine when conditions suit. Funny about the cadence speeds, I would have thought the opposite too!

Thanks doubleblue44 and Perch_master, was a fun time that's for sure.

I was lucky to catch a lot of fish yesterday, and am hoping to duplicate it on Saturday when I visit the lake again.

Will be interesting to see if the lack of humidity and hopefully cooler temps will impact the fish...

Well done Attila. Usually the smallies are the aggressive ones but maybe this heat wave has something to do with that. Hope you had success the following day

Thanks Mikey, and yup, I think the heat really turned on the largemouth.

Thing is once the front passed and the air temp dropped and brought in the wind on Saturday the smallies really turned on...which resulted in the best day of fishing I've had in over 3 years.
