Bad Weather Can't Stop Todd Hart

Posted Thursday, September 26, 2013 by cnull in Kayak Fishing Blog

The forecast last weekend (9/21/13) called for thunderstorms with high winds, especially along the gulf coast. I still wanted to fish. The bad forecast would not force me to hide under the covers. I woke up early and headed for Lake Fayette. I would target some bass. I launched and hit my normal places. My first few stops were a bust, with not so much as a bite. I continued searching and switched to a dark-colored popper (top-water lure).

After a couple of hours I found a patch of cattails that seemed to be hiding some bass. I casted the popper and worked it back to the kayak. I would pop it hard and it let it set for a moment while retrieving the bait. I managed to pick up a few bass using this method.

I was really surprised by this aggressive little guy.

The wind really started to pick up and the top water bite seemed to slow down.  I switched to my old favorite Cotton Cordell lure.

This produced a few more bass. The wind was getting so strong I decided to call it a day. I struggled on the pedal back as the head wind was unbearably strong.
