I was river fishing in New York during early fall (late September, 2015). I was jigging and steady retrieving swimbait jigs and bucktail jigs for big smallmouth bass in small rivers. I ended up landing two big smallmouth bass (18.75″ and 18.1″, master angler length) on swimbait jigs, barely losing one bass that looked big on an x-rap, and landing many smaller smallmouth bass while jig fishing and x-rap fishing.

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!
