  1. Nice to wade for the big brown ones again

    2 lb. 11 oz. 19 in. Smallmouth Bass

    1. Nice fish, That little river has some real good fishing in some of the remote stretches. Used to have some big redeye in parts of it as well. Old timers would use ...more cane poles and white jigs to tease the big ones out from under boulders. When the water warms enough there are about half dozen really good wading streams locally that hold smallmouths of 5lbs or so,,even bigger if you can handle a runaway train on ultralite tackle, it dont get much better imo

      Sounds about right Marty, it's hard to tell apart from spotted bass other than a few small differences
    2. Marty Murray 0
      You really get around Will. I believe I have caught these red eyes in Norris Lake just never sure what they were. Always small & I think only get to be 8" ...more or so.
