Nice looking fish! I am planing to go one day this week...temps to be in the 70's by Friday. But I have my eyes on a shad /die-off gig that may push hybrid stripers and big channel cats to the shore at Pinchot Lake.

If I do the gill gig, I will fish tiny jigs, tipped with bait, below small, sensitive bobbers at some local ponds.

Look who's talkin' " nice looking fish" . You posted some nicer fish recently I believe.

 

Gills I've caught all came on #10 hooks slip floated w/mealies or 32nd oz feather jig w mealies.Gonna use some critters soon .You slip float those ?How do you suggest fishin' your critters Jim?

Oh, I guess you answered me already: "If I do the gill gig, I will fish tiny jigs, tipped with bait, below small, sensitive bobbers at some local ponds."
Jim-Yesterday I caught a Pseed and a Yellow Perch on your 16th oz.Pink critter tipped with mealies.I've been catching slip floating jigs and mealies on #10 and #12  hooks.

More Pseeds than Gills two trips out which is strange!Usually it's 1 Pseed to every 10 Gills.Yesterday it was 10 Pseeds no Gills.

Love Pseeds and some were almost 8".

In a  SE cove Gills and seeds were Sunning themselves in 1-2' of water  yesterday(3/20).I saw many takes but pulled the jig right out of thier mouths many times.They chomped several times on the bait .Hook setting timing was very difficult yesterday. EVEN SEEING THE TAKE! I got some work to do. I tried setting right away and it didnt work . I tried waiting to count of three and was often successful but not always .I tried waiting till they turned or shook their heads and it worked 1/2 the time .It was as if they had to hook themselves . A light lift on the rod was what I tried to remember every time.Sometimes I reacted too quickly and aggressively but never as quickly as the Gills if they wanted to spit it out .
 Caught about 25 fish but must have missed that many at least. They would come from 10 ft away to investigate the bait. Mealworms dont catch as many as spikes per bait but are attractive to the fish on jigs.I was going with spikes on #14 Eagle Claw hooks.
