  3. Largemouth Bass with a jerkbait

  4. Largemouth Bass with a zara spook

  5. Caught this first cast of the day...bite was really slow from 730am to 2pm caught 5 about this size today. Caught two on squarebill crankbait, two on jerkbait and ...more one on a spinner bait. My guess is that they are hanging in deeper water. Just hard to find the right spots in a kayak lol. It’s supposed to start cooling down so hopefully the bigger fish will be coming up shallow soon!

      Awesome! My son lives in Cleveland, tn so Harrison bay seems to be the closest access but boat has a big tank!!! lol Thanks for the tips!
    6. I used to fish out of Harrison Bay a lot. I actually haven’t fished down that far in a few years. but a lot of guys that I know have been having success with swim ...more jigs, chatter baits and spinner baits. around 6-15 feet. it’s been kinda cool the last week or so but it’s about to heat up to mid 90’s again. so I’d say deeper.
