Fishing for River Smallies - How Far Would You Go to Catch a Bass?

Wade fishing the Upper Potomac River for smallmouth bass on a 95 degree day… Can’t beat it! Eric and I fished a 400 yard stretch of the river and managed to find groups of bass hidden in certain grass clumps, holes, and current breaks. We would go 20-30 minutes without a bite then catch 3-6 bass in a several minute time-span on tubes and topwaters when we found em!

The best wading water shoes I’ve ever used – superior traction and support (does not allow rocks in)

Help support small businesses and check out the swimbaits and draggin’ heads that Eric used!
