Do you love big bluegill?
Wondering if any of you use the gulp alive products and if you would share your unbiased opinions. I have watched some you tube clips but most of the guys were in high dollar bass boats with Berkley…Continue

Finally have seen the sun after all the rain we have had in the last week. My oldest son and I decided that we should go fishing this morning, so we loaded up and launched our kayaks at dawn. Water level at our favorite lake was still about 5ft above normal but we were confident that we could still find some gills. Caught a few on top water around flooded structure but went with a bead eye dragon fly nymph to connect with the bigger ones…Continue

Distanced my kayak several feet away and rolled out a cast with a popper dropper rig. Slurp!!! Mr. Bluegill was home. …Continue

With the success many of you have with crickets, either fished alone or tipped on a jig. I decided I needed a good cricket pattern for my fly box. I had tried in the past to tie a cricket pattern, but was never happy with the profile or proportions. I have a foam spider pattern that is easy to tie and I thought if I could add some shapely legs, a wing and some markings I could produce something that might pass for a cricket to a hungry gill. I little time at the vise produced…Continue
