I was fishing at a small river in New York during late summer or early fall (mid September, 2015). I was river fishing by drifting live bait on a free line, including madtoms, suckers, and crayfish. I ended up catching some smallmouth bass and a relatively big fallfish (18.5″) before leaving.

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