Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

went fishin' today did ok I only caught two white bass on some roadrunners off in a creek out from the main river the fish were in that pre-spawn mode which was kind of surprisin' considerin' how cold it still was and how fat they were for there size. but it was worth lossin' a couple of jigs and hangin' up some times. but they were hugged to the bottom of the creek and they were at the openin' of the creek, I think they were followin' them shads around and the water in the creek was obviously slightly warmer than out in the swift current in the main river.

Keep fishin'. Keep fishin' hard. ~ Tobias

Tobias,
If you have white bass in the river or creek with flowing current, try using a jig and cork. Use the longest medium weight rod you have, and put a float on that's big enough to suspend a 1/8 oz. marabou crappie jig. White or Chartreuse are good colors. Tie one on and set the depth around 3 - 4 ft. Cast upstream and let it drift down river, giving it a twitch-pause, action. Usually after you twitch it, they will take the float under.

Not sure about the river or conditions you are fishing at, but this technique works well for me when the White Bass are "making their run".

Good luck and let me know how you do!

Here's some fish I caught using this method last week.
