Big Largemouth Bass TV show Kayak fishing.

Posted on June 29th, 2011

[nggallery id=546]James Beaupre and I decided to shoot a trophy Largemouth Bass TV show fishing from Ocean Kayaks today.  To our surprise when we arrived at James favorite “pot-hole” lake, the air temperature was a cool 12C.  Today’s forecast called for 24-25C, and we were both dressed in shorts and a T-shirt.  We quickly put on rain-suits, and headed out.  We both brought our pet dogs to the lake and James Poodle, “Missy” was as ready as we were to go fishing and immediately took a seat in James Kayak.

We headed out and started fishing shorelines casting TriggerX Slow Sinking Plastic worms and flippin’jigs rigged with a TriggerX Craw.  As we had suspected, the bass were not on the shorelines, probably due to the sudden drop in temperature overnight.  We quickly started to fish open-water weedbeds in 7-10′ of water and connected right away with two nice largemouth.  James first fish turned out to be a chunky 4 1/2lb. fish while mine was a respectable 3 lb. fish.

Based on our first two fish James suggested we fish a fast-dropping shoreline that was loaded with submerged timber.  We kept our kayaks in 20-30′ of water and made long casts in towards the timber.  We again connected with some really nice largemouth bass.

We were blessed to finish the TV shoot in about 4-hrs., just as it was starting to warm-up.

My choice of gear for using TriggerX soft-plastic baits today was the Rapala Shift Rods/Reels loaded with 10 lb. test Sufix 832 line.  The top producing TriggerX baits were the Flutter Worms and the Craw.
