Smallie Migration?

The seasonal movement of smallmouth bass is more than we once thought.

Dr. Hal Schramm takes an in-depth look at how smallies seem to actually migrate in some river systems. For years the conventional wisdom was that the smallmouth didn't move far between seasons in most rivers.

Hal sheds light on studies that suggest that their movement is far greater than many assumed, and that it somewhat mirrors the migration of catfish in some larger river systems.

From an angling perspective, he contends that understanding these seasonal movements can allow us to better predict how to find bronzebacks during different times of the year on our home water. Learning why the smallmouth are where they are can be a powerful tool in your ability to find them.
