On the eve of Day One of the Blue Ridge Brawl, we asked the Elite Series anglers to pick three anglers they think should excel on Smith Mountain Lake.

Expect shallow bite and finesse fishing on Smith Mountain

Apr 13, 2009

When the Bassmaster Elite Series pros arrive at Smith Mountain Lake for the April 23-26 Advance Auto Parts Blue Ridge Brawl out of Moneta, Va., they will find markedly different conditions than those presented to them in 2007, when the Elite Series first visited. The anglers can expect pre-spawn and possibly spawning conditions on the crystal clear waters of the scenic 20,600-acre lake nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
