Name:10-18-2015: West Waushacum Pond
Created By:fdw9652
Details:Hit the pond at 0650 this morning. It was around 33 degrees when I set out this morning. Saw no movement at all in my usual spots. Was fishing with plastic swimbaits and a bluegill swimbait. I cast the bluegill swimbait and was slowly retrieving it when I felt a light thump. I thought I ran into some weeds, the lure got heavy, I gave it a tug to free it from the weeds. Needless to say, it wasn't hung up in the weeds. My lure was stuck in the mouth of the biggest Largemouth Bass of the year and the 2nd biggest bass of my life!! She weighed in at damn close to 6 pounds. First picture of the scale said 6 lbs, second said 5 lbs 15 oz. You can bet I'll call her 6 all day long!!
Wind picked up and made the paddle back to the access point a challenge. Waves were white capping and breaking over my bow. One wave broke over the cockpit edge and soaked my right leg. It was good to know that my kayak could deal with weather like this, but I was glad to get off the water. Getting wet is not a bad thing when the water if 75 degrees or higher, and it's warm outside. It's a different story when the water temp is mid 50's and it's only 47 outside.
It has been a great year kayak fishing this year. I think I will have one more weekend then I may put the kayak on the wall and call it a season.
