Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Long ago, before Katrina swept all my stuff away, I bought a Master Crappie Grabber telescopic pole.

 

I admit I wasnt much into sacalait, and so I only jigged for brim and sometimes for bass.

 

A few months ago, the bass were biting but were small, same with brim, so I pulled the sacalait pole out and tied on a white an blue tube jig.  The pole is very sensitive, and i could tell a goggle-eye from a sacalait. I began to catch a lot of sacalait.

 

One day, I had something hooked, i think a tchoupique, and it was a little too big for the jig pole, and it ran and wrapped the jig around something, I pulled, thinking it was lifting but it cracked the pole in half. I could see the jig on a stump, and i knew then that I goofed.

 

Well, I went through TWO BnM poles, one Uncle Bucks, and none of them had the sensitivity as the Master Crappie Grabber 3910 model.

 

I got two of them in the mail yesterday. Got them from glockworld.com

 

 

Does anyone else use a similar pole with just one eye on the end>?

There is a good statement in there- kids get hooks in them, it happens more frequently than we would like (actually the whole post is great)...

Bend those barbs back when you first start fishing with kids.

Great you are bringing them back out - they are a whole lot of fun. I am just now recovering from a 300+ outing on Saturday where I had to fish beneath a tree, next to concrete with the wind at my back- the worst pole fishing situation imaginable! I was zonked. I had around 7 rig changes needed from tree tangles, concrete wrecking my float and the worst tangle I have ever had. Every time my float hit the concrete wall, I heard a little finish chipping off it.

Sure enough, once I broke that finish it took on water and was sinking. I rigged up a new float and lost a bunch of time when the fishing was HOT.

Enjoy that telescopic action - I think it is the best way to fish.
