Kayak Fishing 9-15-13 Potomac River 18 Incher

I ended up working all day Saturday and resting as my back was giving me a little trouble. I think it was from sitting in my kayak for so long on a few trips prior so just decided to focus on something else for a while.

Sunday morning rolls around and I see a bunch of Facebook friends up on the Susky catching pig after pig. Many guys are starting to talk about Fall patterns now with some of the colder weather starting to stick around. Naturally, this got me excited about getting out there if they are biting. I got excited about trying some crank baits and mostly some plastic jerk baits. The smallies in the Potomac have been hitting fast moving twitched baits recently.

I ended up paddling a long way upstream. Farther than I have before. Click below to see the route I took Continue reading

Bass: Don’t Let Them Be A Pain in the Grass

This is a great article I found about fishing grass for bass particularly this time of year. My personal favorite is weightless soft plastics with thin profiles. Or if there is a little water above the grass, a shallow diving crawfish crank bait or lipless crank.

By thin profile soft plastics, I mean something that I can cast out there and let slowly sink while my kayak is drifting downstream. The thin profile of something like a Texas rigged senko or jerk bait or small craw allows it to get down between the grass where the bass are hiding in the cover. In this case, that’s if I’m moving parallel to the direction the grass is growing. If I were to wacky rig a senko, it would cause it to ride up on top of the grass rather than pull through it. That may not be bad in some instances, but I mostly want to get it down where they are and pull through the grass. A slight twitch every now and then has been know to produce quite a strike too. Enjoy this article with other good grass bass fishing tips.

7-31-13 Kayak Fishing the Upper Potomac for Big Smallies!

It was a good night. I think I would have gotten more if I wasn’t run off by a storm. These guys all bit either a small super shallow crawfish crankbait skimmed over the grass or a 5″ pumpkinseed (natural) senko I drifted through the grass. Here’s some video and pics below.

All in all, it was an epic few minutes.  I wish I could have stayed.

My Ultimate Zombie Gun Winter Project

I figured I’d post this up here as a little fun entertainment for you as I was entertaining myself as the kayak fishing season is winding down. I stumbled across an article on The Art of Manliness a while back about the ultimate zombie apocalypse survival gun. It totally captured my attention and instantly wanted to do it, myself. However, I left it alone for several months and now that there is not as much fishing going on with cold weather, storms, and high water, now is as good a time as any. I started with my Mossberg 500 all purpose and ended up with something pretty kick ass!

Mossberg 500 All Purpose

 

 

 

 

 

 

I already had my 12 ga Mossberg for duck hunting. As I was reading all the mods done to it, I started to worry that I might have one of the ones where the forend was a singular piece and couldn’t be taken off. After a little closer inspection, I found the castle nut and got it off after removing the slide and unscrewing it. The forend came right off. From there, it was just a simple matter of attaching the mods that I wanted with very few tools. Here is a list of the mods that I’ve already added:

  • ATI Pistol grip butt stock
  • Swapped out 28″ barrel for 18″
  • Phoenix Technology forend with quad rail system
  • Tactical foldable 5 position foregrip
  • Ka-bar serrated pistol bayonet
  • Nebo flashlight laser combo with presser switch

Now it looks like this.

Zombie mods to Mossberg 500

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is still a work in progress.  I have several additions I’d still like to add to complete it.  The butt stock, pistol grip, and foregrip are all hollow and can be used to store survival gear and/or small tools, etc.  There are 3 more additional mods I’d like to add:

  • 5 shot shell butt stock side saddle
  • 6 shot shell receiver side saddle
  • A 25 shot shell sling

That might add some significant weight, but in a survival situation, I’d like to start off with as much ammo as I can.  I’m combining that with 2 full bandoliers and a shot shell belt.  I have a good supply of bird shot, 00 buck shot, and rifled slugs at the ready for a variety of survival needs.  This was  a fun project and I’m going to stretch it out a little further.  It’s totally easy and anyone can do it.  The aftermarket parts for guns like the Mossberg 500 and Remington 870 are quite numerous and inexpensive.  You can have fun mixing and matching different parts for what you’d like to do.  Now that I’ve converted it, it is extremely easy to convert back for duck hunting.  Although I think I will keep the pistol grip butt stock because I like way that feels.

If you’ve done something like this, post a link to a pic for us in the comments section.  I’ll probably follow this post up with a future update as I add the last few mods.  Be on the look out for that if you’ve enjoyed this.  And be sure to download a copy of my Zombie Apocalypse Survival Handbook.

The Versatile Tube Bait for Kayak Fishing Success

Sometimes when I’m on the water it seems like bass won’t bite anything, but a bass tube bait. Even in the midst of other more realistic baits, they may prefer the tube. It just depends on the conditions. I say it is versatile because, maybe more than any other bait except for a jig, it can be used to mimic a variety of forage. Additionally, they come in a wide range of sizes from 1″ for crappie, up to 5″ for large bass. Even beyond that for some salwater applications. Most times, a tube bait is meant to mimic a crawfish on the bottom with the tentacles looking like the claws and legs, but can also resemble a bait fish. They can be casted and retrieved, used like a jerk bait, twitched, drifted, deadsticked, even trolled. It can be rigged with a jig head, nose rigged, texas rigged, even rigged backwards with a jig head. I’ve had bass bite on all of these presentations and rigs depending on the day.
