4.7 lb. Smallmouth Bass caught by Bill Fennimore fishing on Wednesday May 06, 2009 at 16:30 in Lake Champlain 7.34 km from North Hero in Grand Isle County, Vermont (VT), United States North America using a Black Back gold side orange belly husky jerk a Stick Bait by Rapala International

Two Buddies and myself caught over 20 Smallies on Lapans Pt using Husky Jerks, Rootbeer Crankbaits and #2 Vibrax spinners from Blue Fox. Weight (by Scale) varied from 1.5Lbs up to the largest 4Lbs 11ozs.
We fished from 2 May - 8 May and hit this spot several times over the week and consistently caught fish!
The Northen end of the lake is in the low to mid Fifties and the smallies, Largemouth have really turned on! This week should be fantastic.

WARNING - Lapans Pt has a ton of rocks just under water that run far out from shore 100Yards or more in spots. Use trolling motor to work your way in. 2nd boat with us hit one that was out 100 yards but luckily only got a prop ding & skeg scrape!
