Stupid Me but also a first

Recommended Posts

Last Friday I took the kayak out to an 85 acre lake and shortly after I got there the winds were hitting 20 mph, I stayed close to shore as I worked my way around the lake trying to stay out of the wind as best as possible. The water obviously had a good chop and water vis was next to nothing.  After a couple of hours of not even a nibble I remembered reading that such conditions called for a loud and flashy bait.  I put on my biggest buzzbait, silver blade, bluegill skirt, and started casting it into a shallow bay, 3 feet of water with weeds to within about 6 inches of the surface. I really cranked it back hoping to make a lot of commotion and get a reaction strike.  Third cast I caught this nice bad boy at 17".  It's my first ever on a buzzbait.
