A Good One From The Kayak

Recommended Posts

Had 2 hours this evening so I headed to a local reservoir for a few bass before the monsoon hits tomorrow! I caught most of my fish (14 total) on a frog in willow grass, or pitching a pegged 3/8oz t-rig with a pit boss. I tossed to a laydown and my bait was going to land on the tree trunk so I pulled it about a foot when it hit the water so it would fall beside the tree. When I did this I saw a big one come out from under the laydown and eat it. I reared back on the fish and after a brief fight and one nerve-wracking jump, I got my hands on her. She weighed 5.75lbs and was 22" long. I never catch any big ones until May or later anyways so this is only the beginning!

Also drew first blood with the pompadour. The big size is not too big :D

Nice! How you like that pomp? Been wanting to try one after reading an article in bass master but can't pull the trigger with the high price.

Sounds like a great day.  I'm recovering from major knee surgery so I won't be yakking for for a long time.  Man I miss it.

They wouldn't touch a cavitron but would eat that bait. Definitely a different look than most topwaters, and it is NOT just an expensive jitterbug, the action of a jitterbug is completely different. LOUD too. 

 

I haven't used it enough to give you a firm answer, but the bait has potential.
