On this trip, I chose to take out a Jackson Kayaks “Cuda 12” as we were doing about a 3/4 mile paddle upriver in moderate current. The boat was just what I needed to get up to the edge of some rapids and navigate through the rocks once I was there. I started the day off throwing spinners, which landed me a few nice bass right from the go. Most of the bass were holding right on the edge of the rapids and were slamming the spinners as I pulled them.
As I started my way across the river I got out several times to stretch my legs. I fished from a few sand bars and shallow spots on rock ledges, and again produced a bunch of nice fish with spinnerbaits. I decided to switch it up a little bit and put on a swimbait. Not long after I pulled in the fattest fish of the day for me.
I continued to float down the river towards the boat ramp into some calmer water. The swimbait kept producing fish on my float back down. Since this is one of my favorite spots, I’ll be sure to hit this stretch again in the near future.
