September 6, 2020 - Motorcycle What?
I'd been motorcycle camping before, but never motorcycle fishing. So when the forecast called for a high of only 88-degrees for today, I thought it was a good a time to load up the Kawasaki Vulcan S 650 and give it a try.
I hit up a private lake, about 30 miles from the hacienda, which was known to hold some decent bass a number of years ago, but hasn't been fished in quite a while, so what could be pulled out of the 96 acre "tank" was a mystery.
To add a little excitement, all I took (besides a hat, ice water, a sandwich and a chair) was a Zebco 33 rod and reel combo with minimal tackle.
The result? Three very nice bass, a half-dozen more awesome strikes, a bluegill and a wicked sunburn (yeah, I should know better). The Zebco 33 actually worked very well but next time I'll string it with 15 lb. test line, not 10!
