Reservation Number : 28836
Property Name : Kickapoo Lake
Reservation Date : 06/09/2021 All Day -
Total Fish/Sizes : 8 LMB
Lures Used : Soft plastics; topwater; chatterbait; crankbait

Fun day on the water even if the weeds were frustrating at times.  Partly sunny, water temp 78 – 80 degrees with SW winds at 10mph.  Fished 7:30am – 4pm.  Weeds are thick from the shoreline out 20 – 30 feet and almost mat-like in the coves.  Frog and other topwater lures worked best as kept bass out of the grass.  Normally I can yank bass out of the grass with my soft plastics but I lost at least 5 or 6 fish that pulled out the hook when they buried themselves in weeds (braid didn’t break).  I tried other lures but they consistently got hung up in the weeds or were unproductive in the more open water.  Lake was up but ground was hard, no mud, easy access into and out of property.  Had plenty of bites throughout the day to keep my interest but would have preferred to put a few more “in the boat”.  Sure was better than working though!

Yes – any day fishing is better than working!  Thanks for the hard work and report.
