Once again our intrepid kayak angler Mark Easterling braved high winds to fish some of his local backwaters of the Cumberland. Mark was throwing his favorite, topwaters, and the fish were happy to oblige. He says he hooked up on several good fish and two really big ones but sadly he was having a bad day so the fish were winning more than he was.
He reported water temps around 50 but the bass were holding shallow even though they were doing more slapping at the baits than really hitting. Still to be able to have fish blasting topwaters this time of year is awesome. Mark says he will be back out soon and share another report with us then.
Kayak fisherman Mark Easterling got out this week to give the largemouth a try. He had 11 total along with some fish on topwater even with water temps in the mid to upper 40s. Mark will throw topwaters when there is snow on the ground and still catch fish. Amazing stuff.He caught these fishing the backwaters off the Cumberland River.
Get ready if you aren’t already, temps have been high, the water is warming and fish are hitting. Go out and see what you can do.
