I was fishing in a small river in New York during fall (October). I was jig fishing for the most part with black and white bucktail jigs and brown and orange curly tail jigs, and I was jigging them softly by working them up and down slowly through the water column. I was trying to target smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and walleye. I also burned some blue fox spinners for bass, caught a northern pike while jig fishing, and caught a few fish on rapalas. It was a cold fall day, and I ended up working lures at a spillway first (before sunrise) and then jigging at a few pools along a small river. I said many dumb and embarrassing things throughout this video because I was really tired.

This definitely isn’t the greatest video in the Lure Fishing series, but it’s kind of special in its own way because it’s one of the first. I’ve had many better days of fishing than this one just one year since I started making the Lure Fishing series — lots of videos with much longer and many more bass, plus many videos where I target other types of fish and share the tips and techniques I pick up along the way.
