I was jig fishing at a river in New York during summer (late August, 2014). I was fishing by drifting and twitching tube jigs around a dam for big smallmouth bass and also jigging in other parts of the river, and I ended up catching two of my smallest bass of the year as well as two big smallmouth bass — an 18.5″ smallmouth bass and a tall-backed 20″ smallmouth bass (both over master angler length).

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!
