NEPA lake kayak fishing bass report (6/8/13)

By John “Toast” Oast

This morning Dan Hubbard from Anthracite Outfitters and I met up at on a local reservoir in northest Pennsylvania. With all the rain and weather changes this past week, the largemouth bass bite was slow. I had a couple very small bass early on, throwing spinnerbaits, searching the edges of lily pads. A couple hours later the sun began to peek through the clouds a little, and you could almost feel a slight change in the pressure. As I was only getting short bites on a 7″ Tickler worm from PowerTeam, I downsized to a 5″ Tickler, and landed two quality bass. They were both caught rigged weedless and weightless, in open water areas between the pads and shoreline.

Try out the Tickler worm on your local water.

With all the success I have had on it, this soft plastic has become my go-to lure for largemouth bass!
