What A Way To End The Year

Recommended Posts

I took my kayak to a local river today to look for a couple of bass. The water is high and muddy but I find it easier to fish those conditions this time of year because it puts the fish on the banks and tight to cover, at the pace I fish this time of year it helps a lot. Checked the water temp. this morning and it was 51 degrees, blessed to be in the south. Started with a texas rigged baby brush hog and right off the bat I put a 21"er in the boat. There was  a lot of brush in the river from flooding and I was having trouble working it so I switched to a small 3/8oz flipping jig. Caught one small one on that and no more than 15 minutes after the first fish I put a second 21"er in the boat! That pretty much set the tone for my day, I went down the banks flipping to any brush, rock, or laydown and ended up catching around 20-30 bass. Most were only 12-15" but I did have the two 21", an 18", a 17",  and a nice one on an A-Rig (also my first A-rig bass) that I didn't measure. What a day!

Nice work! Skunked today but I sure gave it my best effort. I practically could have fished in my front yard with all the rain I've been getting. :D

Same here man. The amount of rain we've gotten over the last week is absurd.
