Five Lakes Bluegill Trophy Hunt- 2013

After doing a little research on lakes within a twenty mile radius of my location, on the DNR Master Angler website and a call to the local DNR office I was motivated and directed to focus for the Master Angler Bluegill from this lake. My experiences previously on this lake are considerable boat traffic from pleasure as well as a lot of fishing pressure... food fishing for gills. So I’ll have my work cut out for me but I feel good about this mainly because of the above avg growth rate for panfish from this lake.

Good fishing

Dick... i stand corrected late july early august was the period of time i set up my fly gear.

Greg... all I have is the floating line on my 3 setups. Ill probably leave them like that for now and hopefully take up next spring if the arm pain subsides. But wiuld like to try the sinking line especially for crappie.

Oh and thanks Dick for the compliment.

Dick... ive put all my flyfishing on hold in late june or early july because of my arm pain. So lately ive really tapered off on the game fish and casting artificials. So ive concentrated lately on the panfish slip bobbers and ultra light spinning gear. Hopefully the pain will taper off. I would hate ti give up fishing.

So that day I was using slip bobbers and worms. I have yet to try crickets. Leeches were not working very goid for me.

Great job on your summary Ken very interesting. Its hard to believe your rubber spider is still producing this time of year something I don't think I would have used but goes to show don't be blinded by the paste experiences and experiment. Thanks Ken.

Ken, Do you have a SINKING LINE for YOUR FLY RODS???? Try some bigger fly patterns and work to bump bottom with dragon flly nymphs and leach or minnow patterns!!!!!!! I use an INTERMEDIATE FLY LINE that is clear work the PATTERNS REAL SLOW!!!! 

SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAD A GOOD OUTING!!!!!!!

091013--hit Five Lake today and it was scoured clean of weeds... for me no weed lines no bluegills. motored around the primary and secondary breaklines and found a school of fish around 15 ft, marked a waypoint and worked my way to the shallows with intentions of working my way deeper to the marked school. ton of fish shallow but small 4-6 in all day long. worked my way deeper to the marked school on my sounder. hit pay dirt with a bunch of 6-8 inchers.

Water temps took a dive the past couple days from a peak of 92 degs  to mid 70s today with the passing cold front. Caught many fish with an orange spider with white legs casting close to or under docks. Largest fish was 8.5 inches caught on the 3wt under a dock. Caught 0 fish on the leeches suspended on a slip bobber from 5 to 10 ft
