plugs for bass
In my personal experience, catching spring bass on the south shore is a matter of finding the right location and the right presentation for that particular spot. I will give away my secret spot. During the first weeks of May, kayak the channel between the draw bridge at Moses and the small island just across from the Captree fleet. If the conditions are right, and I mean a good running tide, no eel grass screwing with your plugs, and high rather than low water. the keeper bass tend to favor a popper with a red head, white body,and a slow, jerky retrieve. Since the current can be strong in this location, you might be at an advantage if your yak is equipt with an anchor cleet toward your stern. That way, you can anchor up mid channel and still have your bow facing down stream. A plug tossed aft, with the current can be worked extremely slow as it is retrieved against the flow. Again, I stress that I can only vouch for this technique if you're fishing the location mentioned. I have done battle with quite few really nice bass at that spot. The only hassle is that by around 6:00 am, the Captree fleet fires up those diesels, and it seems to send the bass scattering. We're talking quiet, finesse fishing here. Early morning is the only time you're gonna connect in this spot. It might produce in the dark hours, but I have not spent enough night time there to report accurately.
