Zig- I saw the video you produced "several hours of panfishing" a nice and interesting piece of work. I liked the way that the pages turned. The other video was good too, it's alays good to see kids getting a chance to fish & spend time with folks away from the influence of TV & video games. A good job all around.
Agreed Zig - interesting that when I tip fly rod crickets or woolly buggers with powerbait wrigglers, the rock bass are steady customers. Other soft plastic tipping baits - like Exude in the micro grub or the new waxies, seem to appeal to the crappies, bluegills and perch better. ( a purple micro Exude grub - abaout a half inch long, was attacked by one of the largest bass I've ever gotten close to the boat - 2 lb test gave way - but man my heart was a 'thumpin ! )
Yoh Zig, I'm sorry I didn't post a picture of my biggest Bluegill but I can't find It so i put up some Crappie.
I actually do too much Bass fishing but decided to spend more time on Crappie, Bluegill, and Pike now that I've aged a bit. Our fishing declined here for quite a while as everything was about the Salmon fishery. Hopefully now that that has declined they will concentrate on bring back the panfish. Thanks for writing back. Thanks Don Hartman
