Big Bass Fishing at Little Seneca Lake – Topwater, Drop Shotting, and the Deeper Fishfinder!

 

Cornell from YouTubeFISHINGVIDS invited me back to his home lake. The last time we fished it was December, the water was freezing, and the bite was brutal. Completely different conditions this time, with water temps in the low 60s, I slay a 2.5 lber in the first 5 minutes of the day on a buzzbait! You’ll have to watch the rest to see how our 13 hour day on the water unfolds…
