Fall has always been one of my favorite times of year on the water because there is less traffic due to hunting and football, and of course the colors that begin to cover the landscape make the trip even more scenic. Oh, did I mention that the river bass bite really picks up that time of year as well? In this video Bruiser and I get a taste of every aspect that makes Fall so great in my book and catch some nice fish on my favorite smallmouth, spot and shoal bass spinnerbait – the “mini me” by SOB Lures.
…..Have you ever heard that Riverbassin™ is contagious? Well…..it definitely is. My good friend, Cajun who does a lot of traveling around the world on his job, recently had a dream about just that while on a trip to Dubai. Share with us that adventure!
The latest high definition RiverBassin TV episode continues with Part II, where the dramatic conclusion to BasserDrew and Deepstep’s day is revealed. They battle with more big smallmouth and encounter a few more surprises. All of this and more in the conclusion to “These Smallies are Legit, Don’t Quit.”
This is part I of the latest RiverBassin TV episode, where BasserDrew and Deepstep hit the water in search of river smallmouth bass – pound for pound strongest black bass there is! Let’s just say by the end of the day they have sore forearms and a lot of memories to share.
This is the latest RiverBassinTV episode that was shot back in late March. Zach and Loyd Olson joined me and caught some nice fish as well, despite the high and murky spring time water conditions. The big smallies were on and put on quite a show for us!

After its impoundment at Lake Emory in Franklin, it flows again through the beautiful Blue Ridge farm country until it is impounded again at Fontana Lake. Read the full story
This is the latest River Bassin TV episode titled, “City Bassin!” Sometimes we overlook the areas right in our backyard, but they can be productive from time to time. Most people prefer to get out of the city when river bassin, but once finally on the water and away from bridges you actually still feel like you are in your own little world and the bass sure don’t seem to mind all the commotion either!
About: Smallmouth bass (micropterus dolomieu) are known as the pound for pound strongest fighters in the black bass genus (micropterus), of the sunfish family. They are aggressive in nature and, once hooked, their aerial displays rival Shamu the killer whale. These fish do have smaller mouths and look quite a bit different than a largemouth bass.

The month is July and it’s already hot by 10 am. I am drenched in sweat after paddling 2 miles downstream on a river in South Carolina. As a bonus, there is no car waiting at an access point down river. Why not another car waiting? Because this is a solo trip and I will have to take out where I put in. However far I go, I will have to paddle back upstream against the current to my car.
