    Well, I was lucky to get out before the rain and fish for a few days while on vacation this past week. I was able to fish small lakes, large lakes and do a little river fishing! (class 2 and 3's in a 13.5 foot fishing kayak is interesting!)

    I was able to catch a number of different species including: largemouth bass, spotted bass, shoal bass, striped bass and some crappie! Didn't target cats but plan to put a few in the yak soon!

    A few pics are attached(striper, spot and shoalie). I was particularly happy to catch my first shoal bass, a fish that is native to Georgia and only found in a few river systems! Hope the rain ends soon and everyone can get back out fishing!

    What have you all been catching from the kayak lately?

    Great fishing report, Greg!

    I sure wish I could wrestle free some time to hit the water, but the house improvements have me up to the earlobes in work right now...:sad2:

    Last few weeks have been great on Lanier! I have been catching striper, spots, and some nice stringers of crappie in the kayak!

    A few pics:

    Your water must be pretty warm if you can put your feet in it. Nice mess of crappie.

    The water is still a bit chilly, but feels good on warmer days! Temps are fluctuating due to the strange weather but are close to 60 degrees.

    This is the first year I have targeted crappie from the kayak, I must say it is a nice stealthy way to sneak up on them! I have had several nice stringers the past few weeks!

    I'm pulling in a little of everything. Lots of channel cats, large and smallmouth bass, crappie, goggleye, lots of pan fish, gar, snapping turtles, and I caught a buzz a couple times. LOL...... I want a monster catfish this year in the kayak 20+.....
