When they look like football's, they are having no issues with a "healthy diet"! The smallmouth fishing has continued to be great here in MN. As you can see the strike king tube baits have been a bait of choice and do an awesome job of intimidating a crawfish. The crawfish is one of a smallmouth's favorite forage in any lake.
The walleye also seem to take to the tube baits as well. Lake Mille Lacs continues to be good fishing with #s and some size. For those looking for crappies, on many lakes they have also been up shallow spawning and been pretty easy to see anc catch with a good pair of polarized sunglasses.
