|Details:||Since the calender hit December, I've been trying to get my first December bass, and have been failing miserably (but have been bagging trout on jerkbaits and cranks like mad). I headed out on my kayak around 12:30 today, barely 38°, to Paradise Lake. Fall/late summer, this place is the type you catch like 15-20 fish in an hour, but only 1.5-2lbers, I have yet to catch any bigger myself. I started throwing a jerkbait for around 35 minutes to no avail so I decided to switch to a squarebill (lake is only 10 feet at the deepest but water levels are down so prob 8 at the moment). I was just bored and ripping the squarebill as fast as I could, pausing for 3 seconds and repeating. Finally caught a 12 ounce little dinker. Few more casts, couple tiny perch. And then I got the best of the day, 1lb3 ounce. I know it's not a giant, but I am just happy to finally catch some December bass. I ended up with 5 total, 4 on the squarebill and one on a BHB jig. Tomorrow to try somewhere else, cause I am bored.
