I am not a big Spanaway lake fan myself.... But I do need to try Silver and Kapowsin lakes soon........ I can honestly say , that the biggest bass I ever brought in was only 6 inches long.... I know that I can do better than that..... wink: never really targeted just bass before, but I am collecting some tackle for it, and hope to use the guidance of some members here to bag me a trophy bass.... who knows , I am a fast learner..... I might get a 10 incher someday. wink:

Kyle, buddy, Spanaway and Silver are still on the bucket list of lakes to fish, but King fever (no pun intended) is fast approaching…

Bubba, I still have some extra Bass gear to get to you - courtesy of NWWC. The next time we hook up we will be sure to bring it. Cami and I hope to hit the lakes a couple more times before its time for an all out saltchuck attack on the Kings.

Every season has its allure and Spring is definitely ripe with opportunities to feel the bite. Thanks for the comment, Mystical Legends!

Esox Angler, how awesome that you and your son spend time fishing together and that he already has a story to tell about how he caught the largest Bass! Cami and I may just run into you guys sometime; we love that lake. If you happen to see us, give a holler we would love to say "Hi!"

I've been debating where to take my grandson and I think after seeing this, we'll be heading for Kapowsin Sunday afternoon.
Used to fish that lake a lot but not recently. All the scenery in the video still looks familiar.

If you want some excitement, fish it at night. Mosquitoes are horrible for a half hour after sunset and then virtually disappear.
Have the bajeebies scared out of you when a beaver spots you and slaps its tail 10 feet from your canoe/boat.

If any one is there tomorrow, June 5, I'll be the guy in the coleman canoe with a young man and an aussie in it.

Mr. John, one of the things about Kapowsin that makes it so enjoyable to us is that the lake has not changed much over the years - no homes or skiers. At times you almost feel hundreds of miles away from civilization. Cami and I hope that you and your grandson have a great time tomorrow!

Volynski, you are welcome, sir. We have not personally had any issues with car prowlers or tweakers while parked in the public launch parking lot.; however, I am not sure about the experiences of others.

I appreciate it...gotta love getting the kids out,they don't care if its 2 ounces or 10lbs. Good times for us even if we get skunked. We're hoping to be up there this weekend.....the weather looks good,at least thats what the report says for now. ;) Again,nice work out there!

Absolutely Great Video and pics. Really enjoyed it an informative to. Have panfished that lk. for years, only incidental catching crappie with topwater(poppers, dry fly's) fly-fishing gear. Just Tues eve. caught one that had to be pushing 2# big fun on the flyrod but only that one crappie. Mostly catch small bass and goggleeye. Will pic up some micro jigs and target the Crappie next time I get out there. Never thought there were so many Crappie in there as I've only caught maybe a dozen in last 10yrs, however will say only catch big ones with the topwater stuff.
Thanks, and tight lines to ya.

Really nice pics and video. It's nice to see a husband/wife team enjoying fishing together.

I hit Kapowsin yesterday for crappie. I'm new to crappie fishing. Tried to do what you did, little whie jig under a bobber with a Gulp thingie on it. Fished the lily pads around the island and got 2 crappie, 1 bluegill and 1 midget rock bass (a first for me).

Can you tell me what I should be looking for right now as far as targeting crappie? Any help you could give me would be appreciated.

Thanx,

randy

Randy, congrats on the first mini Rock Bass and the other panfish that took a liking to your offering. It sounds like you have the pieces of the puzzle pretty well put together. If it is Crappie you are after, I would suggest targeting submerged timber/structure, shallow brush that has fallen into the lake that is covered with algae, and deeper weed beds. When the sun gets overhead, think shaded areas - places where the small fish can find cover. Good luck!

Man....(pause with head down and shaking)

I need a boat...I'm so jealous of the day you had here... :cry:
I believe that you can rent a boat at Erickson’s for a pretty reasonable price. I have to admit panfishing on serene Lake Kapowsin is one our favorite fishing experiences. :D
