It was Saturday early morning, and the weekend couldn’t of come fast enough. I popped out of bed with a text from my buddy John. As usual, I already knew I was running late. I quickly grab my fishing gear from the corner of my room, and jetted to John’s house.
At this point, I had no idea where we were headed too, but I knew it would be a good spot. When I arrived, John informed me that we were going to our normal stopping grounds, Red Cedar lake. It was a good time of year to go because the weeds were starting to grow throughout the lake, and the milfoil hadn’t taken a hold yet. Especially, in the back of the lake.
When we got there we loaded up the canoe, hooked up the trolling motor, and headed straight to the back. As the clouds rolled in, we worked the lily pads to start our day. We were mostly fishing with plastic worms, but we also used our jointed rapala’s.
It was pickerel early on, until this Largemouth struck my black and blue plastic worm, on the initial drop. The Bass came in slow and steady, and we didn’t realize the size until we spotted it close to the canoe. It weighed a fat 3 lb. 1 oz. A great way to start the weekend. Cowabunga! BassNinja®.
