Do you love big bluegill?
I was fishing a 5 star lake this weekend Green Lake of Green Lake county Wisconsin. I am posting this because Green Lake has some monster Bluegills, 10 inch bluegills are more common in this lake than any other I have fished, I have witnessed 11+ inchers here as well.
I fished Friday, saturday, and sunday this weekend and never caught a small fish. I caught my limit each day , 73 were crappie and only 2 bluegills. Sunday I started fishing at 7 am, by 7:30 I had 19 crappie. Then I didn't have a bite untill 2pm. The crappie came back, I caught 5 more by 2:15pm and they were still biting I fished untill 3pm and I caught a bunch more.
I don't use a vexilar or a camera so I was peeking down the hole from 7:30am to 2pm, I never saw a crappie but loads and loads of bluegills, all of them just swimming around I used every color and bait in my arsenal and I only got one bluegill to even look at my bait an 8 incher and it looked small compared to 50% of all the other bluegills I saw.
What would cause the crappies to be so aggressive and the bluegills to cruise almost in slow motion with no interest of looking at possible food?
Yea Bill cause the Packers got whomped by the Super Bowl winning Giants!!!
That sounds familiar.... I had a tough time with BG's this past weekend also.
I have a theory as to why the bluegills were in zombie mode.....it was super bowl Sunday.......they were in a state of denial because the Packers weren't playing....
The perfect location, by the sounds of it. As for why they wouldnt bite, well.... I dunno!
oh yeah I used everything, waxworms, spikes, red spikes, red worms ,night crawlers and I have about 100 different colors of plastic. I also used every color of jig and hook that I have.
luckyyyyy! on the bluegills, did you tip the lures/baits with a waxworm, piece of nightcrawler, Crappie Nibbles, Maggot, etc.? i think scent has a lot to do with gills not wanting a lure or bait..something as small as a pinch of nightcrawler can add a scent that i guess "tells" the bg to go ahead and take it...just my opinion...congrats on your catch man :D
