Holy Crankbait Batman!

Cooler weather is coming, and fall is right around the corner.  The dog days of summer, along with really tough fishing, are on the way out!  As the water temps drop on our east Tennessee lakes, baitfish and bass get more active, and this triggers some of the best fishing of the year.  Probably the best tool for fantastic fall fishing is a crankbait.  Whether it’s a deep running bait searching for some schools of fish leftover from the summertime ledge bite, or a super shallow square bill screaming through schooling fish chasing bait in the very back of the pockets, a crankbait should be the go-to lure until the really cold water of winter. 





Bass Pro Shops, Sevierville has just received a huge shipment of Bill Norman lures that will fit any depth or situation you may encounter on the water.  Included in this selection of baits are the popular models, such as:  Thin N, Fat Boy, Mad N, Deep Baby N, Deep Little N, DD 22, and others.  There are baits that run 2-3 feet deep, all the way to 15-16 feet deep, in many colors.




I forgot to mention the price.  This special shipment of lures is at the fantastic low price of $1.99!   That’s right, less than $2 a crank bait!!!  They are located in the main aisle between fishing and men’s apparel in a table, with the price clearly marked.  They won’t last long, so do NOT wait.  See any of the associates in the fishing department for information and tips for using any of these baits.

Quality Deer Management Association


What can you do to help out conservation efforts in your area? The easiest way is to shop at Bass Pro Shops! We have several Conservation Groups that we choose to spotlight during the year to help them out with their efforts; June is Quality Deer Management Association Month.


QDMA is a non-profit wildlife conservation organization dedicated to ensuring the future of white-tailed deer, wildlife habitat and our hunting heritage.

Founded in 1988, the QDMA has more than 60,000 members in all 50 states and several foreign countries. Since the beginning, QDMA has worked to educate its members and all deer hunters about the benefits of the Quality Deer Management (QDM) philosophy. This effort – aided by the support of numerous member-volunteers, corporate sponsors, and other QDM advocates – has rapidly increased awareness and implementation of QDM throughout North America, resulting in healthier, more balanced deer populations and more rewarding hunting experiences. As it grew in membership and influence, QDMA also began working to secure a sustainable future for wild white-tailed deer through practical research and by advocating for wise policy and regulation that will protect our hunting heritage. Additionally, QDMA works to attract, assist, educate and guide young and new hunters to ensure they become tomorrow's stewards of whitetails and all wildlife. 

QDMA promotes:

  • Safe and ethical hunting.
  • Adherence to wildlife and trespass laws.
  • Appropriate harvests of adult does where needed.
  • Restraint in harvesting young bucks.
  • Hunter involvement in education and management.
  • Cooperation with wildlife biologists and enforcement officers.
  • Education of hunters and non-hunters toward a better understanding of wildlife management.
  • Stewardship and appreciation of all wildlife.



During the month of June if you would like to help out QDMA all you have to do is ask your cashier to round up your purchase total to the nearest dollar.


If you would like to learn more about QDMA, please visit www.qdma.com
