Well, I'm sorry if there's already a goggleye group but here we go. I love to catch these buggers smallmouth fishing! Got some huge ones on an Illinois lake while trolling cranks and casting for smallies.

Only the 2nd Rockie I've caught in this lake I've fished since 1980's!

061114--10" rockie caught on a 3/4 oz rubber bass jig. Mean little sob's ... that's why I like to target them.

The best technique I have is basically fishing for smallmouth tube jigs and worms a 5" jack worm by case plastics is my favorite
