Last week I spent some time chasing smallmouths up in Buffalo, New York. If you’re a smallmouth freak like I am, at some point you have to fish Lake Erie. Even the small fish are footballs and the shear number of bass is insane. One day I shared a boat with Elite Bass Pro Bill Lowen, who proceeded to crush me in the numbers of bass category. It seems every time I fish with a bass pro, I’m like Baby Huey. Case in point, at the end of this video featuring some great jerkbait tips from Lowen, you get to watch Billy yank a treble hook that’s buried to the bend out of my hand. It was bound to happen sooner or later while I was rolling a camera. Enjoy.
