2015 New Species

The 2015 fishing season was a good one for me. The kayak fishing season for me started in April when the ice came off the lakes and continued up until November. I was able to get into four new species which I had never landed before from my kayak. Those species are as follows:

Smallmouth Bass - I fish a lot of Metro Lakes and the majority of them don't have Smallmouth bass in them.

White Crappie - the majority of Crappie lakes that I fish only have Black Crappies. However, I got into a mess of White Crappies on the Mississippi River.

Bowfin (Dogfish) - I have hooked several of these before but was never able to land one while in the kayak

Walleye - I spend most of my time on the water chasing Bass but landed several Walleye's last season on the Mississippi River.

I'm excited for what 2016 holds and knowing that my kayak season will begin in March which isn't always the case here in the Midwest, I hope to spend some time targeting both Flathead and Channel Catfish this year, as well as Carp, Tiger Muskie, and White Bass.
