For my out of state viewers, the Tennessee keeper length on Smallmouth is 18 inches which none of these made it. I just wanted to show 6 of the 8 that caught today and the baits I used. These were 12 to 16 inches.  First everything was caught on either the Lurh Jensen Texas Red Crystal Speed Trap (it looks brown in the pic) but it is very red www.luhrjensen.com  and a OG Tiny Coosa Special  crankbaits. www.rapala.com   All on Sufix 6lb test Clear Blue Pro mix Mono www.sufix.com and a VMC Crankbait Snap www.vmchooks.com  Water temp was 49 degrees and the fish were very shallow–3 to 5 feet at the deepest. I threw several different deeper bait like the DT6 and DT8 but no results.  Just a heads I wouldn’t use the State Park Ramp—Trailers are getting hung up.    Thanks for looking  Rick McFerrin www.tennesseebassguides.com
