Seeing as I had accrued a fair amount of comp time over the past month, I decided to use it up today for a chance to go chase some smallmouth with fellow YA member and Regional Pro Andrew Morrow.  I met Andrew at an undisclosed gas station a little after sunrise this morning.  The location we were fishing was only about a 10-minute drive from the gas station but seemed like it took an hour, as I was extremely excited to be back on the water chasing after those beautiful bronze bass.  And the bass did not disappoint.  Tubes were the hot bait today as every fish was caught on a dark colored tube (green pumpkin or black with red flake).  Andrew even had one bass leave him a nice present, but I will let him tell y'all that story!

We fished until about 12:30 or so, and as I was making my way back to the launch site I decided to throw one more cast.  This last cast actually proved to be my last cast for the day and it was a great one.  I threw into a submerged tree and at first I thought I was snagged. But after about 10 seconds my snag started to swim away.  After a short fight, I landed a nice smallmouth.

I love kayak fishing, especially kayak fishing for smallmouth and large mouth bass.  I grew up chasing blue gills and tiny smallmouth bass on the Patapsco River in central MD.  Two of my uncles really fostered my love for fishing during our wading trips on the Potomac River near Knoxville, MD. I have been dabbling in kayak fishing since 2009, but it wasn't until last year that I truly fell in love with the sport.  Last year was a tough year for me personally with the death of my younger brother and I would have been lost were it not for the peace of mind and clarity I get while kayak fishing
