Precision bass fishing thick weeds in my Wavewalk kayak, by Clint Miller

The pic of the water shows how thick the weeds I was fishing were.
Standup flipping the pockets was the ONLY way to get at the big ones.. there were at least 50 boats on an extremely small lake and the pressure and sunlight had em dug in deep.
No bass boat (or any boat with a motor) could even attempt to go thru those weed mats, and a conventional kayak wouldn’t help because u can’t stand up to hit the 2″ to 4″ holes in the weeds with your bait. So this method was actually derived exclusively from the wavewalk!!! And man am I thankful ..

    Thanks Clint,

    Indeed, that weed mat looks so thick you could almost walk on it…
    Great looking fish! Congratulations 🙂

    Good piece Clint, you really made it clear what a challenge it is to get those bass that are hiding down there, and the photos show that you didn’t waste your time…

    Nice catch!! This is an example showing that bassin can sometime be an art, or a science, and not just a simple leisure activity. You have to figure out what to do, and carry out your plan with SURGICAL PRECISION…. –Lake.

    Hi Clint-

    Wow, those are some big puppies! I could learn a lot from you as you can tell from my Long Pond video. 🙂 I’m just south of Albany and would welcome a chance to go fishing with you if you’re up for it.

    Thanks,
    Michael
