Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

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 had a great 4th.  Nick

Yeah Tony, I haven't had to buy a plastic bait in over 13 years now.  The options that I have is that I can inject any color including the old favorites that some ole timer used to use to anything new or that hasn't been tried before.  My wife refers my injecting to a form of therapy which ususally turns into a tasty meal.  If you or anyone else would like to try some, let me know.  The curl-tail comes in 1", 11/2", and I have a 1 1/2" inch minnow called the Lil' Twitch that work on crappie and gills.  Nick

Very nice Nick! I love the fact that you pour your own jigs.

Good job Nick. I was thinking about coming south to beat this heat we definitely are getting some Georgia weather in Ohio it just HOT so hot can't do much of anything.
