Dolan Falls is an awesome spot to go to, but we couldn’t stay here all day. We had to continue our journey.
Katy took the Topwater 120 and I took the Big EZ Angler for a while. We like to switch it up sometimes so that we can both get a chance to kayak and SUP, because the kayak and SUP have different, unique aspects about them.
The Big EZ Angler takes a little more skill and is more athletic by nature. Paddling the Topwater 120 is, for a lack of better words, easy. While easy might sound bad, it is a really good thing. The Topwater 120 is effotless to paddle and does what you want it to. You can just sit back and paddle slowly, or position the adjustable chair in a more athletic position to provide powerful strokes of the paddle.
I really enjoy paddling my Big EZ Angler though. It provides an awesome vantage point for fishing and looking into the water. On top of this, it is just fun! Standing and paddling is a great combination. While I do think the Big EZ Angler and Topwater 120 have their individual strengths and weaknesses, they offer some awesome capabilities and experiences to anyone who paddles them, so you can count on me continuing to paddle these two boats for quite a while.
Me and Katy paddled quite a ways back upstream to a pool that was upstream of some rapids. I was hoping this pool would have some big bass in it, as it historically has been a great location for me. However, there was not many fish to be found on this day!
I really was a little disapointed with the lack of fishing, but I couldn’t seem to find a lure that enticed the bass on this particular day. Usually I can get a Rage Tail Structure Bug, or a Zoom Fluke to catch something, but it just wasn’t happening. The only catch we were getting was some more scenery…which was awesome!
