The big one was the last smallie I caught of the day, so it's at the bottom of the post, but I just waded a creek for a few hours using mainly live minnows for bait.

Here are all of the bass I caught today...















I caught 2 on a lizard. The rest were on live minnows.






Here is the big one. If my memory is correct, it ties my previous personal best which I caught 5 years ago at 18.25 inches. This one was weighed though, unlike the last one. 2 lbs 9 oz. I was hoping it would break 3. Well I still got higher goals, and will be fishing for smallmouth plenty more in the future.



After that, I had to go and catch one of the big shiners that I had been watching.

Awesome creek smallies. I used to do a lot of that in the Stones River around Murfreesboro, I need to get back to it sometime...A 2pound 9oz smallie puts up a heck of a fight! Did you catch your minnows or buy some and bring em with you.

Good ole cast net. There is only one species of minnow I will use for bait and the rest are thrown back. I even caught a baby smallmouth in the cast net.

That's a good one. Too bad you didn't show off the shirt a little more. LOL. I'll have to steal the photo if that's ok with you for the website.

yes they are in there, but I was fishing with baits that they don't usually hit so I didn't catch any. Normally I see a lot of those in any of the creeks around here. Assuming you are referring to rock bass as a black perch.

Cat I didn't mail that reel today. The traffic was terrible and I didn't want to drive up towards Sevierville to mail it. I'll send it off Monday.
