If you see fish schooling on Smith Lake, don't stop. These sow bellies will try to take your stuff away from you.

Drove 10 hours to catch bass on Smith Lake. This was one of my first spotted bass so I had to video it. Hopefully I will catch the rest in the tournament. Video courtesy of Jeff Holland.
Light snow flurries and freezing pole guides made the Monday practice interesting. Oh, the bass still bit, but the weather was uncomfortable for this Florida boy. Nice lake and great scenery.
