Went to Bode North for a couple hours. Landed 2 smallies and had 3 missed strikes. All 5 hits were on white moving baits. Chatter and spinner. Finally made it out fishing this year! House work and kids sure make it difficult to find the time. Oh, and work too...

Wow! Smallies at Bode - that's a surprise.
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid

:shock: :shock: :clap: That is, UNIQUE ! Never heard of one from there. I know Popular creek is connected to the Fox, but I've never seen ANY stocking info( or any info for that matter) that mentions smallies. and its 5 miles to the fox, as the crow flies.
So thats a nice catch :thumbup:
Never seen anyone else's smallie from Busse either, (which shouldn't have smallies) but i got one , and, from the north pool. :shock:
Definitely caught before me.

Been thinking bout Bode last couple years :think: :-D

Bode North gets occasional pike and musky from the creek. :idea:
