Do you love big bluegill?
Ive never caught enough of them to say for certain. Id sure like to catch more.
Well. strike two on trying to catch Billy (Gar)! He took my bait THREE times last night. When Billy initially grabs the bait with his long mouth I open up my bail and let him run with it, hoping he will swallow the hook and bait; however, every single time Billy crunches his mouth down and the hook falls out. Billy just swims off smiling with those razor sharp teeth. You just wait.. one of these days I am going to get Billy Boy Boy Boy Boy
I am using steel leaders. I will get him eventually!
I would like to catch a White Amur, or better known as a common grass carp. They are difficult to catch, but found in a few ponds and lakes along the Mason-Dixon.
Caught some white suckers to 23 inches on jigs while fishing for smallmouths at the hot water plant in the winter.
My grandpa always fished for white suckers. He would let a worm sit on the bottom below one of those huge red and white bobbers. He ate those boney fish and said they were great. I didn't like the bones so I have never tasted them. In the mountains of TN the locals would wade the creeks at night with a light and spear them, or so I have been told.
Was this caught in a small creek? Like this one :http://bigbluegill.com/photo/may-92-rbsm?context=album&albumId=...
