I want to take my wife on a fishing trip, for her sake, in cooler temps. I usually fish Amistad or Falcon. Any suggestion on a good smallmouth lake, maybe Arkansas or Missouri?

I read the greatest thing since sliced bread was Minnesota but watch out for the Somali's.

I would love to see Minnesota, but I am dragging my boat and need to keep it to a 2 day drive. Any other suggestions?

Lake Murray up by Ardmore is full of smallmouth but it will be anything but cool.

According to some on here, TX is chocked full of 5 pounders. Just pick a lake and go hammer them.

We caught quite a few on Table Rock... spots and smallies. Pete Wenners has a weekly fishing report for the lake on YouTube so you can narrow down on a pattern you want to fish. Doubt it will be a great deal cooler though.

Dale Hollow in Tennessee is very nice though I'm not sure how hot it'll be. I just spent a week fishing in Tennessee with my son. I'm from there so I'm a little biased. We fished Center Hill but Dale Hollow is great for smallmouth. We had planned to fish Dale Hollow but my parents live closer to Center Hill so ended not going.

My son's friend caught his very first smallmouth, weighed a little over 4 pounds. They caught quite a few small mouth, I couldn't catch one to save my life. We had a great time; caught smallies, largemouth, and spotted all in the same day. My son's friend caught a walleye also.

If you go to Table Rock you can also put in on Tanneycomo and trout fish some if that interests you... its right below TR dam and is fed by water from bottom of TR so it is 50° or so and helps to make ambient temp feel a bit cooler
