Kayak bass fishing 7-16

I got out in the metro area for some bass fishing from my kayak!
I had a hard time finding them and it looked like a skunk, until I came upon a huge floating cattail bog over fairly deep water. flipping a heavy jig and pig in the pockets got my some good fish, the biggest looked all of 4 pounds

Panfish action 7/3-4

I met Jack up in Pelican Rapids, and we hit an area lake that was really going for Slabs and big sunfish. Some of the crappies were close to a pound and a half.
My best bait was a 16th oz jig tipped with a 2.5 inch gulp alive emerald shiner colored minnow. Also slow trolling or fan casting a paddle tail plastic put many fish on the line too. Just about anywhere we found healthy stands of broad leafed pondweed, we would get fish.
