Fall has arrived on day three of the Walmart FLW Tour Invitational presented by Quaker State on Norris Lake. This morning, instead of the balmy conditions of day one, the air temperate is hovering around 45 degrees and the high is about 60. For the second day in a row, the weather will challenge the […]
James Watson says he got only a handful of bites in practice. That handful was enough to get him dialed in. By far the most consistent pro so far, Watson added 13 pounds, 4 ounces on day two for a 26-14 total and leads the Walmart FLW Tour Invitational presented by Quaker State on Norris […]
After an ultra-tough day one at the Walmart FLW Tour Invitational presented by Quaker State on Norris Lake, many pros commented that if the weather was colder, the fish would bite better. On day two, Mother Nature tested that theory with a 30-degree temperature drop, and as it turned out, the anglers were right. The […]
We're watching three primary storylines on day two of the Walmart FLW Tour Invitational presented by Quaker State on Norris Lake: will the weather change things, will we see a big riser and will the leaders hold steady?
At nearly 22 feet below full pool, Norris Lake is being pulled down towards winter level, but you couldn't tell it from the recent air temperatures which have pushed into the 80's the last few days. The result is warm water near winter pool, which has made the patterns working at the Walmart FLW Tour […]

Smallmouth fishing in east Tennessee in early fall can be a frustrating job. You run around the lake, casting and graphing, and the whole time you know there are 5-pound-class smallmouths somewhere right around you. Yet, they just don't seem to cooperate. That's because it's not quite "smallmouth season" in this part of the country […]

FLW Tour pro Todd Hollowell is fresh off a fourth-place finish in the first Invitational on Norman and loves fishing in the fall. For a look at how he breaks down a lake, I […]
Norris is a big pond that stretches more than 200 miles from the dam up the Clinch River, meaning there is more than enough room for the pros to spread out this week while they search for the big largemouths, spotted bass and smallmouths that call these waters home.
If you’re like most bass anglers, you didn’t start with the latest gear and a $90,000 boat. You started small, on small waters and perhaps without any boat at all. This edition of “Triple Threat” is a tribute to those times we should never forget or abandon.
