I was fishing at small rivers in New York during late summer or early fall (mid September, 2015). I was small river topwater fishing for big smallmouth bass. I ended up catching two big smallmouth bass (master angler length) on buzzbaits, and I also caught many smaller smallmouth bass on a heddon tiny torpedo.
