You must first know what a smallmouth bass looks like. Smallmouth bass are usually bronze to brownish green in color. Smallies have dark vertical bars on the sides. You need to know that Unlike the largemouth, the upper jaw of a small mouth does not extend beyond rear margin of the eye. The eye of a smallmouth is reddish. Look at the fish's fins it has thirteen to fifteen rays of soft dorsal fins. Its length would go from 12 to 22 inches. You can catch smallmouth anywhere from one pound up to twenty pounds.
You can try a 3/4 ounce spoon , but heavier spoons can be used to help you stay on top of deep fish in wind or current also spinners are good to use.They are extremely good baits for deep smallmouth.You should fish submerged islands or humps and shoals, try tipping them with a live worm or night crawler. You need to vary your retrieve cast and let the bait fall on a tight line, then bounce the spoon off the bottom and let fall again.
