2-21-2010 Stones River

I made it out today and tested out the NuCanoe. It went great. I was comfortable for the 4 hour trip and the fish decided they liked the YUM grub.

Temp: 60s
Weather: Overcast
Wind: 15-20 mph
Water: Did not get a reading but I could stand in it.

I ended up catching a 16" largemouth about 5 minutes into the trip. The next fish was only about 12". After that the day was sight seeing bacuse the fish did not want what I had.

The river was down because the lake is at winter pool. There is a lot of brush that looked good. Next time I'll take an ultralight to check for crappie.
Here is my NuCanoe setup.

 I'm adding a camera and a video mount. I'll post pictures later.
Until next trip.


  1. Excellent post Kevin.Good to see you out in the new boat and catching some fish..I hope to get you down here to Georgia this spring for some shoal bass fishing..Let me know when you can come.
    Stay safe in that boat and enjoy.
    See ya !!

  2. Curious? Where do you put in? Is it slow enough to paddle back up river, or do you have a ride to take you back? Thats all for now, not sure if Im gonna need an account to post so I dont want to write a bunch and find out I cant post. Now I see I can use my gmail. I recently started getting into kayak fishing and have only been down the harpeth. Due to the flood the narrows is closed and I am looking for another river section to fish that will be easy by myself. Any input would be great.
