Nothing pulls quite like a river smallmouth. Before I headed on back to Texas, I went on over to Missouri and caught a couple Ozark river smallmouth bass! I love Texas as much as y'all, but there is something about the natural beauty of the Ozarks, and how clear that river water is. I took a few photos and some little video clips for y'all, here. I think I had more fun messing with the little creatures in the water, than actually fishing.

I don't know how to add little video clips (I'm not sure it's possible), but I had a few more cool ones with some snakes and crawdads.

I did, however, put together a YouTube video. This is definitely one of my favorite videos, just because of how much fun I had that trip. If you're into that sort of thing, take a look! It's fast action, with plenty of fish. Just know I got a little adventurous with the music. Can't use certain songs because of copyright issues, BUT there's nothing that says you can't use REMIXED songs smile



Thanks y'all! Until next time.

Awesome trip!! The only place I've ever caught a smallie was from a small river in Ok near broken bow. And WOW what an acrobatic display it put on!! Nothing like small water and good fish!

I agree, they really are quite the aerial acrobats. And they just never give up. About to pick them up? Nah, you're still in for another run or two.

I could not agree with you more!

I'm from St. Louis and miss my trips to the Ozarks, Southeast Missouri, and Montauk State Park.

Lakes, rivers, creeks... Largemouth, Smallmouth, Spotted Bass, Rock Bass, Crappie, huge Bluegill (1 pound+) and Trout... it can all be found in Missouri! If you head north, you can even find pockets of Walleye.

I have long said that the Ozarks are the most underrated region of the country. Its a beautiful place for sure!

That there is called a Goggle Eye! They are some FINE eating, too. That one was lucky to swim on back to his rocky home.

I couldn't agree with you more. Fortunately it's so rural in some areas that most people aren't willing to put in the work it takes to get there. I live to experience those remote locations on rivers and creeks. Let's just hope it stays that way for years to come.

Caught some smallmouth on the Buffalo River in Arkansas back in May. None that big, was extremely fun. Good video, and nice fish.

Man, I sure do love the Buffalo. Certain parts are over-run with tubers and trash, now. But there are still those difficult to get to, secret spots. Nothing wrong with little fish, as long as you're having fun!

What river did you fish? I grew up there and really miss it. Some of my fondest memories are from the Ozarks.

Way to go. Those smallies are a blast. I'm a native Texan and have fished untold thousands of times here, but I like fishing almost all other states much better. The fishing is better and the people in charge are often much more sympathetic to things like boat ramps and courtesy docks. Compared to Florida or even Arkansas, Texas is a joke, fishing-wise. I would have laughed at such an assertion years ago, but after traveling all over North America in my quest to catch a fish in every state and Canadian province, it's become clear that TX is far from the top of the heap. The lack of boat ramps on rivers is one of my chief gripes - river fishing is downright awesome.


I don't like country music, but I don't mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like country music, denigrate means 'put down'.

This can largely be explained because Texas does not have a state or local income tax. The same is true for Florida, but fishing and tourism is a big part of their economy, so they invest in water areas.

I was raised in Missouri where the State Parks, Zoo, Art Museum, Science Center, etc were all "free". Each of these venues were well staffed and had a lot of amenities. Each State Park had several boat ramps with docks, picnic shelters, defined hiking paths, clean restrooms and paved parking areas. Many State Parks had deeply discounted cabins for rent (about $75/night to cover maintenance and housekeeping).

It was "free" because we all paid 7% in state and local income tax! (6% to the State and 1% to our city of choice).

Personally, I prefer the Texas way... no income tax, pay as you go by way of State Park entrance fees and sacrifice on a few amenities along the way.
