Took the yak out to Tradewinds Park today for a bass fishing tune-up for next weekendís Florida Bass Paddlers 2nd Anniversary fling. What a nice day for it. Winds were up 10-15 out of the East. Paddled to the 1st area I wanted to fish. After figuring out the drift I caught a nice 2 pounder on the 3rd cast using a spinner bait. Had a couple more bites but lost them in the fight.
I left that area for another close by. Had a bunch of strikes in the lily pads on a plastic worm but those too got off the hook. Damn. Then I drifted to another area that had a lot of fallen trees and cover, picked up the good old jig and pig and boated a nice 3.5 pound fish. Caught 2 more nice ones on the same set up. After that it was a dink fest until I decided to head on back to the launch and pack it in for the day. I had the whole place to myself and it was great.
All in all a very nice day with some nice fish caught. Four respectable fish and about 10 dinks. I canít wait until next weekend. I plan on coming in 1st and winning it all. (Thatís the plan anyways)
I have pics but can't figure out how to post them here. Any suggestions??
