Do you love big bluegill?
Post spawn is officially upon us in northern Illinois, and this is my favorite time to start chucking spoons over the edge. Recovering fish have now positioned at the base of the weededges and subsequent drop-offs.
The depth these fish are holding at a range from 10-20 ft, and make them easy victims of the spoon......1/10 - 1/5 oz spoons have been very productive when long casting through the concentrations of fish that inhabit this pivot area. These spoon weights will be my choice for at least the next month until the big gills head for really deep water in August.
When they finally reach their deep water haunts, the use of 1/4 oz and heavier spoons will be implemented, and launched into the abyss.
I am stoked to try these spoons I don't have the braided line do you think I will miss alot of hits because of the mono?
