John M. Grimes replied to Smoltz's discussion Full moon and the spawn?
"  I know I'm late to this discussion, but we fished yesterday 8/6/2020, 3 days after the full moon. I cleaned a few of the fish and found eggs in 2 of them. Are these late spawners or do female Bluegill spawn more than 1 time a year?"

"Brad, I agree. I think you may be right in your assumptions. I know exactly what you mean. That’s how I feel trying to cast long whippy rods. "

"Smoltz, Just a guess on my part but you know when you fly a simple paper airplane that sometimes it flies better if thrown modestly, that by comparison, if you rear back and throw it really, really hard it doesn't go as far. Crashes into the…"

"I did go to 2lb line. It made a really big difference. I had even now gone to fishing a lot of 2lb for crappie as well. The increased distance and feel is greatly improved. As far as rods go, I have been finding there is weird spot where rod length…"

I like the action of craft hair for the majority of my jigs, including smallmouth bass hair jigs for rivers and streams. I sometimes tie in some silli legs or other rubber for appendages. But for most panfish jigs I like the movement and durability of craft hair.

Fact is since I can read it you must have wrote in in the right spot. I found as you go through the site we start using different things and the more we use them the more familiar we get with them. You have your page which which keeps track of your surfing sort to say. On your page you will have a friends list, any groups you belong to, picture section you want to keep your personal pictures so on and so on. We have Blog section and a Forum section loaded with lots of info. I have found the daily and most recent info will be on the extreme right hand side of your screen and all your info on the left side. I use mostly the Forum section or the Groups sections to relay info and do my postings.
