    Started on deep humps 15 -25’ and caught a bunch of smallmouth on a drop shot and hair jig including a couple of 4 pounders. Moved to the front 1/3 of points near spawn areas with good drop offs and caught small and largemouths on a Yo-Zuri jerkbait in elegy bone. Then we moved to the back of some bays and flipped up a bunch of small male largemouth on both finesse and regular jigs. Great day overall with over 50 fish but only a few nice ones

    I covered my favorite technique for summer smallmouth on lake George in a previous review. This will be my 2nd favorite technique. I was fishing on the north end of the lake and I was marking fish in 12 feet of water over heavy vegetation. So I was using a ned rig it consisted of a ned rig jig head and a small yum ned crawfish. It was only about an 1 1/2" long and was green pumpkin. I wouldnt jig it or work it at all i would send it down to the bottom and then close my bail and wait and you would see the line start to run a little and then i would set the hook and the fight was on.

    Last summer I fished 2 kayak bass fishing tournaments on lake George and the majority of my success came from 2 techniques. I will discuss 1 here and the other in a separate review. The month was August and it was very warm both air temperature and water temperature. The fish pushed out deep and catching them became a struggle. I found the smallmouth were sitting in 40 feet of water around the points of the various islands on lake George. So I tied a Texas rig with a heavy worm weight and put a 3 inch plastic crawfish on it and I would drop it straight down. It would hit the bottom and I would send out lots of extra line then put my rod in its holder and start peddling my kayak around and then as I was pretty much trolling I would get the bite. I ended up catching a lot of smallmouth between 19-21 inches this way.
