Never fished Smith Lake. Daughter has school tourney Oct. 20th. I'm gonna try to perfish week before to see if I can learn something to help them. Any tips or suggestions appreciated. All I know is deep and clear. And Blueback Herron are something to pay attention to.

Thanks
Chad

It will be crowded that is the same day as the autism tournament. This cool weather will really fire up the schooling activity. I will say this though...when you find those big schools on Thursday before the derby keep in mind that they will not act the same when 100 boats run over there head. The bluebacks get a lot more hype than deserved. There really aren’t that many in the lake yet in my opinion. I would say 1 out of 10 active schools are feeding on bluebacks. As far as fishing goes, I would throw a spook or gunfish on the active feeding fish. If that doesn’t work I would throw a spy bait or spoon.

I’m fishing the autism tournament but I will be in the dirt. That deep bite is all about right place right time. It’s not consistent enough for my liking this time of year. A man can probably get paid on a shaky head or jig but I don’t think that is a winning deal right now.

Dad caught 30 in two hours today on schooling fish. Said they were anywhere from 8” to 3lbs. I would have a top water tied on (Sammy or whopper plopper), a suspended jerk bait and a Fluke). It’ll take 15lbs+ to win it.

Only in the dead of winter. When the traffic dies down.

Is your daughter fishing the Airport Marine trail? My son will be fishing their Smith tournament on the 20th.

Yes, we're fishing the Airport Marine trail. This will be our first school tourney. She in the 8th grade, not sure if the separate the junior and seniors up or it's everyone against everyone. We fish with Brookwood in Tuscaloosa.

That's awesome!! Love seeing more young ladies get involved in the sport. Airport Marine trail doesn't split for HS/Junior - it's just one field. They run an excellent high school trail - we always enjoy their tournaments & it's growing bigger each year. Flynn Gerald makes it a lot of fun for the kids which is what it's all about. My son fishes for Sand Rock HS - he's a 10th grader. I hope your daughter has a terrific first tournament - best of luck to her!!
