I’ve been on a swimbait kick this summer. This time it was a Kanan Aqua Relic Fatty Pumpkinseed. I purchased it when they had there 40k instagram celebration. I took it out today and was tossing it atop the weeds in a cove that is part of Lake Erie. I would let it just sink below the surface than retrieve it with a fairly steady retrieve. On the second cast, I caught this nice largemouth bass. He has a few black spots on him. I was using a 6’7” 13Fishing Omen Casting rod and a Lew’s Speed spool casting reel. It was spooled with 14lb Seaguar Senshi mono. Before I left I fished the part of the cove closer to shore, I felt a giant thud, and then nothing. I’m assuming a pike stoled my bait! While are time was short, it sure was a blast.
