Today I took my new kayak out to Quail for my open water trip of the year. The lake was completely open. There were about ten groups on the shore and they had the stockers dailed in on bottom with bait. I was trying the whole time for a Febuary bass but no luck so five minutes before I left I threw on a small red and black spinner and caught a trout on my first cast with that. It was great to finally get back on soft water.
