5/3 Post-Rain Paddle

Postby SnagBros » May Wed 03, 2017 11:54 am

Fished Beck for about an hour today, trying to get my Beck fix before Musky season. Water is obviously high and the clarity has dropped a lot from how clear it was last week. Weeds are poppin up, fish are still very active. Nothing picture worthy, but found some schools of little runts deeper and a few small buck bass on the banks. Didn't see any bedding bass as expected. Still nice to be out, 5 bass all 10-12 inches. Cheers and tight lines.
I have a Orange Ride kayak and I am usually fly fishing at Beck, Busse, or DPR. If you ever see me come say hello, I love meeting new people in the fishing world. Tight lines!

I must have just missed you. I got out there from 1-3. I caught 1 pike that was about 18 inches. I never made a cast toward the banks. I directed all my efforts to fishing whatever weeds I could find in 6-12 feet of water. I fished slowly with a weighted swim bait just off the bottom.
