Lake Sherwood, Warren County, MO September 10th, 2011: Some action heating up with the Largemouths!
This was a kayak fishing trip that I had set out to harvest some fish for an evening dinner. The day was cool and beautiful. I have had some incredible stringers and large catches in the month of September, so I was really looking forward to the fishing!
I was on the main lake and kayaked most of it.....cool temperatures after Labor Day are excellent for kayak fishing, due to the fact that you have most of the lake to yourself, without much motor traffic.
I had a spinning rod with a bottom rig/night crawler set up (which can be a great rig when the panfish really fire up) however, I did not have much luck with that rig. Lake Sherwood has a "Under 12" take all you can Largmouth Bass" set up, so I figured I would try and take enough for a small meal for myself once I got home. I accomplished the goal on this trip!
I had the most success on a texas rigged watermelon trick worm (6")....that has been my "go to" worm this year in regards to bass fishing...once again it delivered!
