This isn’t the greatest fishing video ever made by a long shot, but it’s the video that started it all for me — the one that inspired me to make my whole Lure Fishing series. And making the Lure Fishing series in the years after led to lots of new personal bests in numbers of fish, some trophy fish, and many great adventures and experiences.
I was fishing in a small river in New York at the start of fall (September). I was jig fishing mostly with black and white bucktail jigs, and I was jigging them pretty aggressively, trying to target smallmouth bass and walleye. I also burned some spinners (blue fox and Mepps), and I caught a fish or two on a rapala. It was a cold fall morning, and the water was a little discolored. I started jig fishing and burning other lures before light at a spillway, and I ended up hopping around to a few different pools and runs to jig for more smallmouth bass. I learned later that the reason the bulldozer was driving around in the water was to set up some core sampling work for a new bridge to be built.
I talked like a robot all through the video because I was really tired and pretty excited, too — bad combination. 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.

In this video we talk sonar, side scan and down scan and talk about perspectives of each when searching for bass while out fishing deep. We also talk about where to place a buoy when fishing offshore for bass, some good fish catch footage, and some good screen shots comparing sonar to the Structure Scan screens.

Pitching and skipping docks is a great late-summer/early-fall tactic to catch largemouth bass. In-DepthOutdoors.com “Hooked Up!” Host Greg Huff and guest Jason Holmer, of BassUtopia.com, offer dock-fishing tips on a 600-acre, central-Minnesota lake. They also, inexplicably, refer early and often to a big bass they nickname “Honey Boo Boo.” Why? Tune in and find out!
