Start rigging rods and getting ready for pre-spawn action, winter is shorter than you think.

"This was an epic day on Lake Mendocino in Ukiah, California," said Jef Brewer, a Hobie pro staffer. "I landed and released 15 quality smallmouth that day throwing a Spro Aruku Shad lipless crankbait.  The smallies were in pre-spawn mode and just voracious that day!  The key for the day was to follow the baitballs of fingerling shad and the smallies were never far behind.

One more thing, I have to give a shout out to Hobie for building the world's greatest fishing platform in the Outback. This will be my 5th year on the Hobie Fishing Team and I am proud to ride for the brand!"
