The impressive smallmouth bass was caught by one of guide Del Colvin's clients, Mike K. (no last name provided) this past week on Bull Shoals Lake. Del says the fishing overall has been good this week on Bull Shoals. If you land a smallmouth like that, we'd say that's a forever memory. Photo provided by Del Colvin.
