I was jig and crankbait fishing in a small river and at the mouth of another river in New York during late summer or early fall (early September). I started fishing by burning a rebel crawfish crankbait through some small pools, and I hooked into a decent 17″ smallmouth bass right away. Then, I kept moving to new pools, including a drop-off at the mouth of another river, and I caught some more small and decent smallmouth bass and one small largemouth bass by jigging and burning the same rebel crawfish crankbait.

We know that some anglers can’t afford the highest level of bass fishing gear and that’s perfectly okay. We didn’t always use gear of this caliber. As time goes on and you fish more, the opportunity will present itself to use higher end gear if you choose. You don’t need $1000 combos to catch bass but if you have the opportunity, it definitely makes it more fun!

Had a fun time trying to catch one of these wild browns in this creek! Heard rumors of giant wild fish in this creek, and decided I was going to find one. Did find a wild brown, however, wasn’t the size I was hoping for haha. Still happy I was able to confirm there are wild browns in this creek! Not many of them, but there are some lurking in there!!!
