I was fishing at small rivers in New York during early fall (late September, 2015). First, I was small river topwater fishing for big smallmouth bass with buzzbaits and a heddon tiny torpedo. Soon after, I started jigging with swimbait jigs for big smallmouth bass. I ended up landing two big smallmouth bass (master angler length) on a swimbait jig and tiny torpedo and many smaller bass while topwater fishing and jig fishing. I also lost a smallmouth bass that had to be close to trophy size if not there (likely the best one of the season) at my knees while jigging.

This is one of many videos in the Lure Fishing series -- watch others for triple-digit numbers of fish, trophy fish, the tips and techniques I pick up along the way, and more!
