Do you love big bluegill?
I signed up for this site a while back, then had a kid (well, my wife did), so I've not been out fishing much since (not complaining at all though!). I'm taking my kayak out tomorrow and plan to do some bluegill fishing on my 3 wt. I'm in South Carolina, and the lake I plan on fishing is probably somewhere in the mid 80 range in terms of temperature.
Anyone else fly fishing for bluegills right now? Any tips on depth, types of flies, etc. I plan on going out pretty early (I probably should have posted this yesterday) so I can maybe catch them a bit closer to the shore.
Thanks for any input and I look forward to contributing some to this site!
thanks ryan-caught a lot that size or so myself.went thru a lot of flies.not a bad thing at all.
wanted to update this thread,gills are back on beds as of mon 7/14 in NE IL.i myself caught about 75 in 3 different ponds.no huge ones but quite fun on a 3wt and poppers.they were on the beds thick.usually the second spawn has fewer fish but there were lots of em,maybe a late start due to the extreme winter and all the rain we had.
