Do you love big bluegill?
I love to throw tiny cranks and always catch the biggest fish of the trip with them.
Anyone else use them as well? And what is your fav. crank?
Mine is a tie between the Yo-Zuri 2"Pins minnow and yo-zuri`s snap beans.
WOW !!! thats a fatty, beautiful blue gill, great catch.
LOF, teh Rapalas are a blast to fish with, I've got a stack of'm in my box, the AC Shiners are basicaly the same but teh shiners are hand made up in O.H. by a mom and pop outfit, I've actually called the factory and the "MOM" half of teh opperation answered the phone then she let me talk to "POP", we talked for 15-20 mins I guess, very nice people.
I gotta get me a bitsy minnow to try out, sounds liek ther very well liked amogst the tribe.
Bet that one plug is absolute dynomite on fish.(I just had to say it)
The F03 and F05 Floating Rapala`s are great little baits. I like popping them along the surface like a small insect and before long the lure has disapeared! But working them slowly will catch alot of fish too; not just bluegill but trout, smallmouth, spotted bass, lagre-mouth, perch, ect...
The new X-Rap #4 are doing well for me as well but it is hard to beat the Yo-Zuri baits.
Thats a good ol` stand by too.
But there is something about that thin minnow profile that drives panfish and smallies nuts!
