Do you love big bluegill?
what's up Anthony,i have been out of pocket for a while,but i can say the gills and chinks are bumping the beds down here. this cold weather is holding them back ,although i did catch some nice chinks last week,but they where not bedding .
good to see you are still here. later shooter
John I liked that circle of life example. I haven't started trying to catch any bream locally yet. I've been working on tying a few bream catching jigs. I did catch a nice one last week while sac fishing throwing a sac jig under a small cork (retrieve/jerk technique). So man with a little warm weather you should start to pick up a few.
Tried the bluegill this morning in the canal along Hwy 190 in Slidell and didn't do good at all. Caught two small bluegill using worms fished on the bottom. The morning started out rather cold at 48deg. then warmed up when the sun got over the trees. Hoped the bite would pick up when it warmed up some but no luck. The only one having a good day was the abandoned cat that found us and tried to eat my chum. I gave her the two small bream which she was appreciative of. Had a circle of life deal with the cat, she had a huge tick on her back between her shoulder blades. When she got used to us and came over for a scratch, I plucked off the tick and put the swollen bug on my hook and cast it out. That accounted for the second bream that she ate this morning. Tick eats on cat, tick used for bait to catch bream, bream feeds cat, circle of life. :-)
Glad to see a new comment...I've been doing a lot of bream and sac fishing lately. I've been doing pretty good along highway 51 LaPlace north to Hammond. Caught these fishing a Berkley micro craw 2 ft under a toothpick cork, slow retrieve with an occasional jerk and settle technique.
Went to try out the fishing at a local town park this morning. Water has been higher than normal due to Bonnie Carrie Spillway being open to lower the Mississippi River levels here in south Louisiana.
Only caught four bream, one nice red ear and caught my personal best yet on the Iwana rod. A two or so pound bass. Quite a bit of fun having him tug me around for a minute. I saw something hitting around the boat launch bulkhead and tossed a home made yellow popper over near where he had been hitting. One little twitch and he was on. Really enjoy targeting an actively feeding fish and getting him to hit.
Great morning overall but it has gotten hot. Got to the park a little after 6am and left before 9am.
My buddy, wife and I went back to City Park yesterday and caught several bluegill. Most were thrown back as being too small but the action kept us entertained. My buddy caught a small striped bass about 7" long. We didn't know any existed in the lagoons. We kept about 9 fish to cook. Had a little visitor who destroyed my buddy's bobber. I caught another large Texas Blue, didn't take a pic of him but he went home to live with his brother in my buddy's aquarium.
