If you've ever watched any type of outdoor channel during its bass fishing programs, you've probably seen the awesome commercials for BOOYAH Baits and their signature "BOOYAH!" throughout the commericials.  Well yesterday, I let out quite a "BOOYAH" myself when I landed a super solid smallmouth from a small creek I was fishing yesterday afternoon.  While I have caught much bigger bass in lakes and larger rivers on... (gasp!) conventional and spinning gear... this fish is definitely my largest from a tiny little creek only 15 feet across.  And the best part about it all?  I was fishing to a little bass that was chasing creek chubs and when I made a cast to that fish, I was greeted with the sight of a flash of bronze muscle ripping out of a rock pile and engulfing my fly.  He was big, he was strong and he was pissed off... aka why I love smallmouth fishing.  Now is the time to fish for these bad boys, so GO FISHING!

Now that's what a smallie's mouth should look like

Not a giant, but for this creek, this fish was in charge
