Largemouth could rule at Erie FLW Series event

Largemouth could rule at Erie FLW Series event

> What: FLW Series Northern Division
> Where: Lake Erie (Sandusky, Ohio)
> When: Thursday through Saturday (July 9-11)
> What they’re saying: “Because of the timing of the event and with Canada being off-limits, it’s going to be a little tougher tournament for the smallmouth bass,” said eight-time FLW winner Mike Trombly of Belleville, Mich. “Typically, what ends up happening is those fish come to the islands to spawn and then those fish scatter off into Canada. With it being post-spawn, I think it’s going to be tougher for the smallmouths. They’re pretty much just done. You may have some bucks still on beds, but you’re probably going to catch fish deeper. They’re going to start finding them on the deeper structure, probably 16-feet plus, and you could catch them as deep as 25 or 30 feet. How well they get caught depends on how far into summer they are. If they’ve had a chance to gang up, guys should catch them. It’s pretty much the same old, same old for the smallmouths: Ned rigs – anything that is minnow-replicating – goby baits, that all is good. Gobies are probably the predominant forage species for smallmouth on that particular part of the lake. I think a mixed bag could definitely do it, and I would not be surprised if a largemouth-only angler won it. I think if someone can average 20 pounds a day, they will have a really good chance of winning.”
