What anglers said about Smallmouth Bass Fishing in Tennessee

My recommendation is to fish in the spring while water temperatures are cool. High water temperature encountered during the summer months greatly increases mortality rate of fish that are released. For this reason, during summer, in order to protect the high quality of striped bass fishing, persons are limited to limit of two fish.

Fishing in February is tough, do not come into it thinking it will be the best fishing of your life! That said, if you have the right guide, you WILL be successful. Smith Fishing Adventures, LLC, is why we were able to catch as much as we did.

Very warm temps for this time of year. Cooler water would have been better and I expected cooler water for the end of October. Just one of those things that you can't control.
