Early Season Smallmouth in East Tennessee

For those of you smallie junkies, its almost time. Earlier this week my friends Chris and Randy hit the river to prospect for bronze. It is still a little early for a consistent bite, but given the warm weather we decided to hit the water. Most of the fish were taken in 3 to 5 feet water using hardware,Yes, I said hardware! To be an effective smallmouth fisherman, you really need to expand you arsenal, and sometimes crank baits, and soft plastics do the trick. Especially when the wind is blowing 20 plus and sink tips with big flies become health hazards. Although we love the warmer days when streamers and poppers get the job done. If you are interested in a smallmouth float trip, give me a call at 828-446-5552.
