First kayak outing of 2016 and was able to catch a good sized bass on a shaky head rig. Bright sunny day with air temps in the mid 70s but water temps were still lingering around the 40-42 degree mark.
Started out with jerkbaits and lipless crankbaits which usually do well for me in these cold water conditions, however, after getting zero bites I went to more finesse presentations and finally caught my first bass of 2016.
Bass caught on:
Kayak: Stealth Emotions 11 Kayak
Netbait Shaky Head – 1/8oz in Green Pumpkin Color (received in my November Mystery Tackle Box):
Kicker Fish Hightail Holeshot Shaky Worm – 4 3/4″ in Watermelon Purple color:
Rod: Diawa Samurai 6’6″ medium spinning combo (bought two for $35 @ Dick’s Sporting Goods Fall of 2015):
Line: 20lb SpiderWire Stealth-Braid w/ 12lb fluorocarbon leader tied together with an FG knot.
