Title: Cookie Cutter Bass
Post by: Unchained on June 26, 2018, 04:18:50 pm
Was fishing in the quinte region a few times in the past week and caught about 25 of these siblings, all within an inch of each other.  Also caught a few pike but I didn't photograph them ...just let them go yak-side to avoid getting slimed/stunk up.  Biggest pike was maybe 29-30" so nothing crazy.

One walleye too...or pickerel to the locals.

The little rock bass was funny.  When I caught one of the LM bass, I was dealing with him, and got the hook out and threw the spinnerbait back in the water while meauring it. 

When I released the LM and picked the rod back up to cast out the Rock Bass had latched on to the spinnerbait while it was just floating there 5 feet from the yak.   Agressive little guy.

This post reminded me of a time when I was a kid and living down in Kentucky. I was fishing at a lake and when retrieving my lure a fish shot out of hole in the bank by my feet and grabbed it. It was a little rock bass and after I threw him back he ran straight back to his hole. I then went on to catch it 3 or 4 more times because each time I would put the lure in front of his hole he would hit it again. Not sure if he was that hungry, protective or stupid lol.

Good action. Quinte largies will be moving deeper soon, very shad orientated. And to avoid that giant vacuum cleaner of a school like  of 300 gar that will be cruising the shorelines soon. See you at OKFS Quinte July 21st. Great place to share and learn from very knowledgeable kayak anglers.

sounds good.  I've never caught a gar (or even seen one yet).   Been fishing here for a couple years.

Still looking for smallie action in the region.  Any interest in heading out to Lake O for that?

This post solidifies that I really need to knock largemouth bass off of my bucket list for fish to catch.

will try to, but I think I'm on vacation that week.

tried to sign up on kayakwars to log my catches but it's saying I need a team...I tried to create a team but it didn't work.  Do I have to pay extra to create a new team?

Send them an email and let them know and you should be able to tally them up provided they meet the length requirements. I personally have   caught plenty of fish lately but am not posting them. Way too much work for zero rewards for doing so. Only records that can be broken. Hopefully next year they can get the site back on track
