This is great content that has application on the Tennessee River System for largemouth and smallmouth, as well as north country destinations like Minnesota’s Mille Lacs Lake, the Great Lakes, and upstate New York. We thank Z Man and his production team for sharing footage from Zona’s Awesome Fishing Show 2015, Episode 4.
