Wow, the spawn is early this year. That means the spring time grind is on. Now before anybody goes and gets all upset about me running trips while the smallmouth are spawning let me nip this in the bud. When my boat fishes the river I DO NOT anchor and fish spots, my boat is constantly drifting down river. There for I am not bed robbing. The fish that eat during the spawn are eating streamers or crank baits, which means they are chasing food mid water column and want to eat. A fish on beds isn't coming up for food. We're about a week into the grind so historically we have a week to go. Keep a positive attitude and keep casting.
