Made my annual trip into the boundary waters of MN. Wind was a little rougher then normal, so was hard to keep canoe in position and was hotter than normal, mid 80's. Only averaged 50 fish a day, which is still nothing to complain about. Not sure if its a timing thing but the smallmouth average size has been less the last couple years. This could be very dependent on water temps/weather. But I caught tons in the 2.5-3lb range, nothing over 4lbs. I use to catch several 6's and even a 7lber. Walleye bite was good as usual, caught enough to feed 4 people every night. Didn't get a pic of the biggest but was a 27 incher, PB for this area was a 30 incher last year. Caught three pike over 40 inches with the largest just a tad over 48".
