Still slamming the eater slot bluegills!

Going through some major neutral fish activity...

 just broke the 9-inch Mark for the day

20170919-today was the day of the New Moon one of the highest percentage day for productivity and a great chance to tag that trophy fish as well as numbers of fish. At 97% solunar activity rating I’m on the water!

I’ve been doing well lately with the Long-Cast/.016oz Jig/Waxie working the deeper flats at 8-9’ foot range.

The weather the past couple weeks have been fantastic… above normal temps and calm winds… great for long-casting the tiny jigs. I love keeping the anchor up and positioning the boat with the trolling motor also. Today was a bit different cloudy skies and moderate steady winds with 1-0’ rollers on the flats.

Once out on the flat timing the major solunar period I started hitting the fish straight away. Many eater slot B.Gills crossing the gunwales. I also tagged an impressive number of B.Gill in the 80-90% slot with a Lunker b.gill at 92% master angler rating.

Near dusk I pulled up anchor to start heading back to the launch. I work a few waypoints usually on the way in and tonight was no different. I had a little time for a few casts on one of my favorite holes. Two casts in I set the hook into a brick wall. I knew instantly I was into a big cat. Several long spool burning runs later I was able to slip the net under an impressive trophy channel cat. The fish stretched the tape to 28” just shy of Master angler at 97% Master Angler Rating.

since early June the Long-Cast/.016oz Jig/Waxie has been the top producer and method.

Earl scores a Master Angler pumpkinseed at 9.0 in!

20170920-Earl and I set up a trip for today I day after the New Moon… im still reeling from the day before with the lunker B.Gills and the trophy Channel Cat. I was having great luck on the weedy flats on a particular reservoir so we decided to switch up a little and hit one of our trophy lakes where we tagged the most trophy B.Gills earlier this season.

Once out on the lake we were welcomed with sunny skies and calm water conditions.

Earl and I were starting out using the Long-Cast/.016oz Jig/Waxie method. Bite seemed slow even for the neutral period between the minor and major solunar. Earl switched gears to night crawler chunks on a .032oz Jig and started slowly picking up on the bite and finally tagged a trophy Master Angler P.Seed at 9.0 inches during the Major Period.

I continued with the Long-Cast/.016oz Jig/Waxie method tagging two P.Seeds in the 90-100% MAR (Master Angler Rating)

Halfway thru the Major Period I had to drop Earl off at the dock and I continued to fish for a few during an early afternoon slooow bite.

At the end of the day the Long-Cast/.032oz Jig/Nite Crawler Chunk produced more and larger fish including a trophy P.Seed. I stuck with the Long-Cast/.016oz Jig/Waxie method but felt It has failed to produce and ended up with the least productive day ever fishing this method, especially considering the productivity the past couple months.

...20170920-Nice 9” class P.Seed tagged on the Long-Cast/.016oz Jig/Waxie

...20170920-Earl’s Master Angler P.Seed tagged Long-cast/.032oz Jig/Crawler Bit… Congrats!

...20170920-today was about Family, Fishing and Master Angler Certificates

Score! 10 inch bluegill

... so many Big Fish the past few days my head is spinning

 

Just dropped Earl off we had an amazing late morning early afternoon bite many 90% plus fish in a short period plus a 10in masterangler bluegill

 

I decided to stay and fish throughout the periods today because of the masterangler tag

... as I continue fishing throughout this major. From 13:32 thru 16:02 I feel the bite fading away as the peak has passed

... time to start a controlled drift through a weedy flat
