Welcome aboard!

You have a lot of options in this area. Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas will keep you busy for a few years, but Kentucky, Missouri and Alabama are within easy driving distance, too.

Good luck!

Memphis is a great location for bass fishing.  You will be just a few hours from the Tennessee River which offers all kinds of fishing.  You could also go down into Mississippi and fish a number of reserviors or opt for sloughs off of the Mississippi River.  Best of luck in the area.  It's a great place to be!

 Like the others have said you can fish old river runs or go into Miss. or Ark. There are some state run lakes in W. Tenn. and they are all (I think) electric motors only or no-wake.

 If you have never seen the Miss. R. here, when you do you'll understand why I say don't even think about it unless you go with someone who REALLY knows it. It is HUGE :o!

WELCOME to the forums!!!

Yay more Memphians!  If your a boat owner that enjoys alot of variety like myself then prepare yourself to buy at-least 2 licences.  West TN provides some very nice TWRA lakes which are idle only, Pickwick and Kentucky lake are 2ish hours away, Reelfoot isn't that far either.  About an hour south in MS you will find a number of oxbow lakes like Tunica Cutoff which can provide some EXCELLENT crappie, Bream or Bass fishing depending on water level's.  You also have some pretty big reseviors like Sardis or Enid which can provide very excellent crappie and Bass fishing year round.  If you are a bank fisherman, there are plenty of small lakes around town to keep you occupied. Let me know when you get here I can show you around some.

Ps.  If your moving to memphis you probably want to invest in a good bullet proof jacket.
