What is the reason??

I watch a number of you tube videos featuring some of our members catching big gills and crackers.  My question is why do you release them?  Is it simply that your freezers are full, or is there a state regulation on length limits?  I know that in some private compounds such as Richmond Mills that you folks catch and release because you want the population to grow.  If that is the case, doesn't the lake get to the point where you need to take a few out?  Please understand that I'm not…

Finally!!

Caught a small break in the heat on the 4th, so I went to my friend's lake to test out some new colors of the 1" jig that I hand inject.  It wasn't anymore than the second cast when I hit pay dirt catching a 3/4 pound gill.  On the following cast, I hit another gill about the same weight.  That new smoke/silver glitter did the trick.  I was on the lake about 8:00 AM and was off at noon with 18 nice gills and redears to my credit.  Sure felt great watching that 6' ultralite bend.  Hope ya'll…

A good day...Considering

Went to my friend's lake Sunday the 29th on a whim.  It was chilly, damp,  breezy, and the water was muddy from all the rain we've had here in Georgia. (Don't guess what would be called ideal conditions).  Was throwing a 0ne inch black curly tail grub from the bank and got hit right away!  An hour later, I ended up with ten nice gills weighing in between 3/4 to 1 pound.  Hope this kind of action remains this way throughout the season.  Nick

The Bug

Hey Greg, It's one of my hand poured one inch curltail grub bodies that I pinched the tail off of. I then threaded the legs through the body with a sewing needle.  The legs are spinner bait skirt material.  If you want to make your own, buy a package of curl tails and some skirt material and experiment with it.  To complete the rig, run a 1/32 ounce jig head through and clip on a 1" diameter foam, weighted tear shaped or round bobber a foot or so above your terminal tackle. If you don't get…

Hey Nick...I would say that pink in general has been a very good color for me on crappie over the years, from bright, hot pink to just a hint of pink. It is not the best color, all the time. But on many outings I have had real good success with it. I would say your bubble gum option should be prime for crappie.

The article Hoofin it for Crappies was in last months ( Nov 2010 ) In Fisherman. Glad you liked it.
