Early Spring Cold Water Kayak Bass Fishing – Quincy Reservoir Early March 2016

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.
