For the 1st hour and half I had no action on a Alabama rig, which is one of my goals to catch fish on this technique this year. So I tried a 10" black w/ purple fleck worm, and only got one nibble, but I didn't fish it too hard or give it much or a chance.
I then switched over to my good ole trusty Rapala DT 6 "silver" crankbait on my Overboard Soul Pole MH 6'6" with a Shimano Stradic Ci4 2500 (my newest combo, which I had yet to catch a fish on). Within the first 10 minutes I pulled a 17 incher out of some underwater timber.
I continued to fish the structure and the shoreline with depth around 4-8 feet. I managed 2 more small fish, one being a beautiful spotted bass.
22.5" bass another personal best for me this week!!
I called it a day after that as I new it couldn't get much better. While I was on the lake some of my neighbors were steadily catching crappie from shore with a bobber and jig. As I was loading the kayak I heard some excitement from where they were fishing, and it turning out they managed a trophy bass themselves. It's great to see the big bass in my lake are ready for 2013.
If your interested in a guided trip for trophies like the one above send me and email so we can catch you the bass of a lifetime.
