1. Details: Largemouth Bass

    First bass from the new kayak. He wasn't big, about 11-12". Saw him blowing up near the shore and cast past it. He hit the swimbait pretty good.

  2. I somehow managed to hook the smallest fish in the world. I thought it was a piece of grass and when I went to take it off I saw it was a minnow. I just left it ...more on there.

      I'd say that minnow had a bad day.

  3. Details: Largemouth Bass

    Caught this bass right off of the bank on a steady retrieve with one of my favorite lures, the Rapala rippin' rap. I saw it blow up on some bait fish and casted ...more past it. Conditions were windy, right at sunset and poor visibility in the water. Fish is 13" and 1 lb 1 oz.

  4. I finally got my kayak. An incredibly generous friend bought it for me for my birthday earlier this month. It's an emotion stealth 11 angler kayak. I can't ...more wait to get it out on the water.

      @ItzShrock412 stock 3 but I added a triple rod holder

      How many rods can you fit in there? I want a Kayak that can hold at least 2 rods

  5. Dragging the jig on the bottom with an occasional hop

    1 lb. 5 oz. 13 in. Largemouth Bass with a football head jig with a zoom super chunk trailer

  6. Details: Largemouth Bass

    Fish #2 on the jig.

  7. Details: Largemouth Bass

    I lost a fish on a lipless crank and wasn't getting any other bites so I switched up to a football head jig and dragged it across the bottom with some jigging. ...more Caught this first fish on the drop about 20 feet off the bank. Early morning with overcast skies, the jig is green pumpkin color. Caught three fish with the jig.

  8. Just bought a mattlures paddle tail swimbait. I've been wanting one for a while and finally decided to buy one. I can't wait to fish it. It looks so realistic.

      I would stick to the mattlures its Cheeper than 3:16 and works just as good. If not better. One of my older blerts was a good fish I caught on one. Great bait!!
    2. simmsrenegade61 0
      Those are cool lures, good intro soft Swimbait. If you want the BEST paddle tail SBs, spend the money on the 3:16 lure co. stuff. Best out there imo

  9. Details: Black Crappie

    After catching the last crappie I figured out that they were in a lower water column than the bluegill so I changed out the Berkeley maggot for a Berkeley minnow ...more on my bluegill pole and fished it lower. I caught 10 crappie and another 3 came off before I could bring them in. 4lb invisigreen line, 1/32 oz jig hook, bobber and Berkeley minnow. Small twitches on the pole to move the minnow.

    1. Andrew Alonzo 0
      way to figure them out!
  10. Caught on a small bobber rig with a 1/32oz jig hook
