I took a little time off of fishing since the ice broke. This was my first time out on the kayak using a new rod/reel and my first bass on open water of the year. I didn’t get a weight or length because I wanted to make sure he survived. I saw many large bass in the shallows that day but sight fishing wasn’t working. Taken on a Z-Man Ned rig and my amazing woman was there to witness the days big catch. So thankful for all the awesome fisheries Michigan has to offer.
