Default First Largemouth Bass of the Year

Early bass fishing can tough. Our water temps finally nudged above 40 F so I took the kayak out to a local pond. Wasn't expecting a red hot bite and didn't find one but did find a couple quality fish to kick off the year.

Nice video! I fished a recently iced-out pond yesterday for bluegill. With a Tenkara rod and rubber leg hare's ear, I got two bluegill....and four bass. I seldom catch any bass there, but I guess they are awake and taking little morsels!

That's awesome. What tenkara rod are you fishing with?

This was a stealth operation, a "not quite public access" pond, so the mtn bike and Tenkara approach works well. The Nissin pocket mini fits into any bike bag and the size can't possibly be a coincidence. Telescopes to 12 feet.
