Thanksgiving is a time for reflection, a time to give thanks, and a time to catch some big ole brown fish. The three or four weeks surrounding Thanksgiving is when the smallmouth bass fishing gets really good in East Tennessee.
I was messing around the other day — fishing, of course — when I ran into a fellow who reminded me about the Sunday tournaments on a local lake near my house, Deer Creek Reservoir. I’d fished them a time or two in the past and had a good time so I thought why not.
