I was river fishing in New York during early fall (late September, 2015). I was jigging and steady retrieving swimbait jigs for big smallmouth bass in a small river. I ended up landing one big smallmouth bass (master angler length) on a swimbait jig and many smaller smallmouth bass while jig fishing. I also landed multiple big fallfish while jigging, including one longer than the state and IGFA world record, and several smaller fallfish as well.

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!
