  1. Nice job! Gotta love those small creeks for Smallmouth. I love tubes for them. I also use the Yamamoto Fat Baby Craws, idk if you've used em before. They catch me smallies all the time.

  2. I think the secret is out I'm seeing more people fishing the middle hopefully and for the most part people are practicing Catch and release its a diamond in the rough

  3. This is great…you say that's a small river but man around where I live all I have is this SUPER tiny creek…!
    The deepest spots are only about 4-5 ft and most of it is just super shallow.
    After it rains though, if I'm lucky, I can find some decent sized bass that get caught in some of the deeper pools and can't get out 😛
