“Bill, you ready to go fishing?” the voice on the other end of the line rang.
“I am always ready,” I replied. “What’s up?”
Doug Davis, from Cowtown USA, boomed through my ear piece, “Man, Nick Miller says the smallmouth bite is on. You wanna go film a show with him?”
“Sure, I do,” I replied. “But I thought Nick was your catfishing go to guy.”
“Oh, he is,” Davis said. “But, this guy can catch smallmouth, too. Just give him a call and you two hook up.”
Smallmouth fishermen know that when the water temperature approaches 40 degrees, smallmouth bass will begin to hit. Through trial and error, the best anglers have learned that smallmouth are especially vulnerable to jerkbaits this time of year.
