[nggallery id=269]We just finished shooting a trophy, back-lake, Ocean Kayak TV show from Red Pine Wilderness Lodge, ON. The camera crew, my wife Barbara and I and our guides Ryan and Andrew hauled a 13′ Trident Ocean Kayak fully rigged with Humminbird sonar and accessories along with all of our camera gear and a Minn Kota electric motor and 12 vt. deep cycle battery two portages and three-lakes in from Lady Evelyn to shoot some amazing trophy smallmouth bass on light gear. I probably hooked near 50-smallies in a few hours and the largest fish that made it into the show were anywhere from 17-19″ (3 1/2-41/2 lb. fish). All the larger fish were caught on 1/8 oz. jigheads tipped with a half-worm and fished with Rapala ultralight spinning outfits and Rapala Titanium 10 lb. test braid. The Ocean Kayak equipped with a Humminbird 835c worked great to help me locate the larger fish and to stay on top of them. I also caught lots of fish using the Lucky Strike small spinner and worm combination. The portage in and out of the lake was made a little easier by taking a break both ways and enjoying the plentiful blueberries. Make sure to look for this exciting show when our new series starts on TSN.
