I used my 3-wt fly rod with an ultralight spinning reel and two black and hot pink crappie jigs about 18" apart (all they wanted was black and hot pink) at Hubbard today and had a ball. The first fish I caught was a 10-12# smallmouth buffalo which I foul-hooked in the tail. Wow, what a fight on an ultralight rod like that!! I took a pic on my cell phone but can't transfer it to Photobucket, sorry. Then the big, post-spawn mamas came out to play and made the day even better. I caught 2 - 14", 4 - 13", 3 - 12" and 2 -10", as well as one lone cat. In the pic below the 10"ers are the 2nd and 4th from the right, to give perspective of the size of the others. I caught them 2-5' off the bottom in 6-14' fow.
