Do you love big bluegill?
Well... sorta. You still need a boat. But anyway... I found this in a book search online. I just hadda share:
"Catching bluegills during the spawn is easy - they are predictable, easily found and will hit almost anything. But once the Dog Days of summer come around, and the bluegills move to deeper water, they can be hard to find
Heres a trick to help stir up those bluegill and bring 'em to you Drop a rope of colorful pennants (the kind car dealers use) in an area likely o hold bluegill or perch. A weight on one enf will keep the pennants from drifting away and a jug float on top will mark the spot.
Now - leave for an hour or more.
The bright flags attract the panfish and keep them in the area until you return. Fish around the flags with small jigs or live bait, either anchoring over the flags or casting from a short distance away."
How about that!
I found these flags on the internet, about $5-$6. Here are some of the links:
The 60' strings, at about $5, seem the best deal. Most of us could make TWO pennant rigs out of that 60' length. I'm gonna snag me a few.
