Clint Catches More Bass in NY

Clint Miller, from New York, promised he’d send us more pictures from his kayak fishing trips, and this chunky large mouth bass is his latest catch:

Note the simple and effective paddle holder on the kayak’s side – It’s ready to take Clint’s paddle instantly, and allow him to cast at fish he sees while he’s paddling.

Kayak Fishing for Bass with Don, NY

I own a [brand name kayak distributed by a nationwide fishing gear chain store].
I tried out my son Clint’s Wavewalk fishing kayak and caught this 6 lb-4oz largemouth flipping jigs in the heavy weeds. I have arthritic knees and the stand up fishing in the Wavewalk kayak is awesome, so I ordered one for myself.

Kayak Fishing Tour in Tampa Bay

Neil, kayak fishing guide extraordinaire, took me on a 2-day fishing tour of the Tampa Bay area this week, and took these pictures of some of the snook and redfish we caught. We had nice overcast weather and the Wavewalk fishing kayak performed great as usual. Thanks to Neil, I’ll now have a few more places to check out when fishing slows down in Ozello.

Small Mouth Bass Fishing on the Connecticut River

July has been a slow month for me.
I was wading the Ct River for some awesome Small Mouth Bass fishing, and was rewarded with some fine Bass.
The only problem with fishing the river is slippery bottoms, especially around the ledges. I lost my footing after a long morning of wading, slipped off a boulder, and wedged my left ankle in between two rocks…
I didn’t break anything, I don’t bounce like I used to. But I had some bad cuts from the rocks’ sharp edges…. and the car was three miles down river…
I walked back, went to the ER, and they cleaned up my cuts, but the 4 1/2 lb Small Mouth Bass I caught before the fall, made the whole trip worth it.

I didn’t get back out till just last week, I was going stir crazy with no fishing since the 3rd of July.

Here are some pictures from the wading to the old yellow W300 fishing kayak pond hopping, and from a fishing trip with my buddy to Congamond Lake in Massachusetts.

The Battles were fast and furious, Med/Hvy rod with 40lb Fireline braid made quick work pulling the bass out of the lilies and weeds.
