Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

The past few seasons it’s been season outdoing the last. Knowledge base on top of knowledge base. Building on some great info from this site and time on the water. I’m anticipating and looking forward to even better results with more citation fish. Anyway that’s the game plan.

Last year was the season of fishing TINY. Thin UL Lines loaded on tiny 50 series reels and light UL rods tossing tiny baits in front of fish targets…quantities of quality panfish and trophy SMB. Tossed the baits into thick cover with reckless abandon. Tiny presentations under slip bobbers thrown next to thick weed slop and weed pockets. Mid day fishing out of the kayak in less than two feet of water and tagging quality fish. Never really had another fishing boat come close to me fishing. it was like i had the lake to myself. looking forward to making some more good memories in the upcoming season.

Looking forward to any hints suggestions or comments from the BBG membership… sharing is the best way to learn and progress!

hope everyone a successful "2016 Open Water Season"

Finally got back on the water today… having no idea the pulse of the fish in the lake after not throwing a line in over a week.

I introduced Dayton to some slip/floating and Ultra Lite methods… to early to tell but as for now I see him hooked on the sport. On the second cast while teaching him the twitch method on a UL swim bait I hooked up with an 18” class LMB that he helped land with a good swoop of the net.

Dayton soon had a nice P.Seed hooked on the pink waxie of near 8”.

I then soon followed with one of my own.

Late afternoon Earl and I decided to hit the lake for the last couple hours of daylight.

We encountered a good bite on the lake with some quality panfish including a certificate p.seed that hit a drop shot pink waxie in about 15’ FOW. Earl then hooked up with a lunker B.Gill of 9.25” on an UL swim jig on a 1/32 oz jig head attached to 4# Nano.

We left the lake near dusk on a great b.crappie bite because of the mosquitos.

Waiting the storm out at a new launch... One b.gill at 7.5 from shore before the rain

Observe the feeding frenzy, if you can, in comparison between 1 hour before the storm, during the storm, and post periods. I'll be an interesting thing to see for that waterbody you're at. I want to compare it to mine.

Yep... Wish we would've got here a little sooner though.
New BOW for us... Got two sub 5 year olds with us... It'll be interesting...lol

Young anglers will always be interesting..

That's why I got a two seater kayak. Some day I hope to teach grandchildren to love and enjoy fishing and the outdoors. So important to raise the next generation of anglers.
I hear ya Gary... My grandson looked at my loaded kayak and asked where does he sit... So nucanoe here I come...lol
