First time Kayaking

Recommended Posts

Out Kayaking yesterday for the first time, at a friends private lake ( only 200-300 acres), overcast and drizzling all day, first bite around 7:30am, a solid 2 lbs, on a 3/8oz chartreuse/white, dbl willow after an hour in, then nothing, left the water around 9am. Not much structure to choose from the occasional dock or small tree, fishing 2-6 ft of semi-stained water. Deeper water had high grass and some pads here and there, but nothing to sink teeth into. Grabbed a bite to eat and went back out around 10:30;  right out of the gate another 2 lb fish on a 3/8oz black/blue, dbl colorado, 3 more fish off downed trees and docks, in the next hour, all less than a pound. Was having a great time until the wind picked up and blew me all over creation, and sent my spinnerbait flying into an overhanging Cedar tree; out of reach to recover. Still what I would call a good day, woke up and my shoulders hurt from paddling, but it's a good hurt !! Just thought I'd share ! NO pics I was worried I would drop my phone in the lake, gotta get a "go-pro"

It's awesome isn't it. Sounds like the first of many adventures. I choose to fish early mornings to beat the wind as much as I can. I haven't tried a wind sock yet.  Glad to hear your first day was a success.

Congrats on your maiden voyage.  Sounds like an adventure.  At least no skunk was involved.

The lake is really quite nice and well kept, but full time residency is limited. Out of 50 lake-front lots, only 12 are allowed full time.

it's really a weekend get-away and the fishing pressure is high, stocked with trout 3 times a year due to the volume of fishing.

Don't know how the bass got in, but glad they did. Two resident otters have killed several bass in the 5#-6# class over the last year,

efforts are being made to trap and relocate them. But still a decent fishery, can't wait to go back.
