What a Difference a Day Makes...!

What a difference a day makes. Went kayak fishing on Lake Lavon Sunday. Dealt with windy conditions and lots of waves from the wind, boats, and jet skis. Went back out Monday; minimal wind and waves… very nice!

Fished the east side of the lake Sunday putting in at the South Ramp and then working north toward the railroad tracks. Noticed the area had lots of folks fishing, so crossed the cove and found a calmer area. Ended up getting four keeper size Crappie and losing another one due to the hook breaking at the bend.

On the way back to the boat ramp, trolled a Crappie Jig and Slab Rig, and caught White Bass. No keepers but still fun catching them. Also, caught a couple of Yellow Bass at some point that trip.

Monday fished the west side of the lake putting in a Brockdale Park. Calm conditions made for easy kayak fishing. Mainly slow trolled for White Bass, using a Swimbait and Slab Rig. Really liked it but lost it to a snag.

Still a good time with three keeper size White Bass. Most went for the Slab and Swimbait, others hit Crappie Jigs and a Tube Fly as well.

PS: Posted two videos from Sunday to demo the portability of the Featherlite Kayak and how it handles when fishing , and a third video from Monday showing the calm conditions.
