Ever went and looked at your states record fish and say to your self..... Ive caught and eat one bigger than that! OMG Its happened to me. I would love to nail the WRBB but as we all know I got a better chance of winnin the lottery a half dozen times in a row of catchin that monster. Ive only seen one 2lb gill in my entire life on the end of my pole. Well make that 2. The other was prolly pushin 3lbs of shellcraker. Dang thang made me madder than a pack of wild dogs on a 3 legged cat when it broke my favorite BnM telescopic pole. Any way....... I was just lookin at my state records and I got alllllllll excited when I seen warmouth record was 1lb 12oz. Ive beat that. I eat that. Ive released a couple back. I got a few holes that in the dead heat of summer I can really put a whappin on em. This year my friends I SHALL BE A BIG BLUEGILL STATE RECORD HOLDER!!!!!!
Do you have a state record you think you may have thrown back? Ive done it and I know other folks who have.
I thank I can do it. I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can.
The time is getting closer and closer! Caught a few that beat around the 10" mark last weekend while crappie fishing. Something Ive noticed. BIG BAIT = BIG WARMOUTH! Im starting to think that maybe I need to target the big boys with shinners! There still deep now. Havent caught a gill in months. Crickets dont like the cold. We got exactly 5 weeks till the first spawn. I wish Somebody could just put me to sleep sometimes so I wouldnt have to realize what waiting was!
I hear you on the waiting really starting to suck. SO CLOSE but yet still to far away. Big bait keeps the little fish away just leave the little sucker waiting on the big one,. Here fishy fishy. I did catch a 13" bass on a #10 crappie hock with a 1/2" flathead minnow. But in a 3/4 acre pond where else can he lol
Back in 2007, my youngest and I spent a day fishing for white perch. They are considered an evasive species here in Pa and we just happen to enjoy eating them - which makes for a great combination. He managed to bring home two fish that stood out from the others in the cooler - one went 1lb. 15ozs., the other a 2lb. 1ozs. specimen.
We took some pics and proceeded to prep the entire haul for a fresh fish dinner. That evening, as I sat down to work, I looked down the list of PA record fish just to see what the white perch record was...........................it's still at 1lb. 7ozs.
Jeremy, you should always target that big warmouth sub-conciencely....it will come. However if your going to fish with Marie while in search of the state record, be sure and set her up with some type of surface bait to set the odds in your favor!
