The last two weeks have proven to be great for bass fishing, at least on Lake Fayette. I have made numerous trips over that time period and some of those trips have yielded 30 plus bass.
The fishing has been great. I have been locating fish in depths between 7 and 8 feet.
All bass have been caught using Cotton Cordell® Super Spot® 1/2 oz Lipless Crankbaits. The two colors I have been using are pictured below.
The bite has been best early in the morning and right before sunset. Some bass have been caught within the first hour after sunset.
Most bass have ranged between 14-18″. They are fun to catch, but not quite the trophy size I’m seeking.
The largest bass measured a hefty 21″. As you can tell from the picture below he bite after dark on the way back to the truck.
I have found bass in numerous places throughout the lake. But often times I have to spend a bit of time searching. They tend to be schooled up in various areas, however those areas seem to change daily. The only consistency has been the depth.
The highlight of my recent bass trips has been the introduction of my dog, Kozmo, to kayak fishing. He really seems to enjoy it and I really enjoy his company.
I learned real quick he needs to wear a lift jacket.
After retrieving him from the water, I suited him up with the doggy PFD I brought along. It is made by Outward Hound and works nicely. The handle on the back of the jacket comes in handy.
He seems to get excited whenever I hooked a fish and he always wanted to be part of the action.
I think I’ll have to fasten a platform to the front of the Pro Angler. He really likes to stand up front. I guess that will be my next project. As soon as the winds die down I’ll be back out on the water seeking that trophy fish.
Until next time, tight lines and bent rods.
