How to catch a smallmouth bass

139992527Q. I have never caught a bass in my life, even though I’ve been fishing a lot. I really want to catch a smallmouth bass. What are you’re suggestions? Here’s the question: How do I catch a smallmouth bass?

A. Smallmouth live in a lot of deep and clear lakes, but they can be hard to catch because they roam a lot. Smallies that live in rivers or streams are a lot easier. They feed around current, especially in rocky areas that break the current, like rip rap or wing dams on big rivers or rapids in a small stream. Cast your bait to the edge between the fast moving and slow moving water and you’ll often find feeding smallmouth here.
