Great bass season for Michael, in Upstate Ny and Cape Cod

Michael is a passionate ‘bass hunter’ whose favorite bassin method is top water lures. He prefers small lakes and ponds with abundant vegetation, where he goes mainly after largemouth bass.

This summer was very good for Michael in his numerous fishing trips in eastern Upstate New York, Western Massachusetts, and Cape Cod.

Here are some pictures he shot from the cockpit of his W500 –

Cool summer but good fishing in Upstate NY

This summer has been rather cool and windy in the Northeast, but the low temperatures did not present any problem to the bass themselves.

Here are some pictures of chunky bass and trout that Clint caught in Upstate New York, standing in his Wavewalk 500 –

Kayak Bass Fishing In Early December, In Connecticut

The following kayak fishing report was posted by Rox Davis earlier this month on the W fishing kayaks blog. Rox is one of the world’s finest kayak bass anglers. BTW, now all fresh water in New England is pretty much under ice… –

How can I complain, it’s December 6th, and I’m still fishing out of my yak, the W500.
Today I fished rainbow Reservoir. I left the motor home and paddled… halfway to my spot I was thinking… I’m an idiot, yep certifiable. The motor would have been soooooooo much quicker, and easier. rolleyes
Any who………….I got the the waters edge at 10:45 am, reached my spot at 11:20 am…………frigging winds.   :)
Water was stained, dark tea, 44 to 46 degrees, and the current was ripping.
Winds were light to 10 mph.
They are drawing down water, it dropped a good 4′ by the time I left at 2:30 pm.
Light rain fell almost the whole time I was fishing.
Which was fine, I have my new rain gear, and I was dry as a bone.
Tossed a deep diving crank, chewing the bottom up good with nothing to show for it.
Tossed the blade bait, nada, plus I left 3 of them on the bottom snagged to what ever lurks in there.
Pulled out my paddle tail on a 1/8oz and 1/4oz jig heads.
The 1/4oz had a smoke colored PT, and the 1/8oz a shad colored PT.

I would cast upstream, and bump bottom all the way back to me.
Lost many to snags……. banghead
But when I would make contact, and pop that jig off of it, Thump!
Every time. cha
I moved around quite a bit, but the faster water produced the Bigger Smallies, the slower side perch and smaller smallies.
I ended the day with 8 perch, some were ready to pop they were so fat, and 12 Smallies.

Life Is Good!
Tight lines and MoPaddle safe all.

John’s Kayak Rigged for Fishing Cold Water Species – Wisconsin

John Fabina, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, fishes both in his state and in Michigan.
His favorite species are muskie, walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, and crappie.
John made this instructional video showing the way his W500 is rigged for fishing:

John has a special talent for camo design, and his fishing kayaks are each a masterpiece of camouflage, in different patterns and colors.
