Thanks Mike. Everything you said makes sense. One of my biggest problems is trying different things and changing up colors and weights of baits. I have a tackle box full of stuff but when it comes time to try something different, I just keep trying what worked last time out. Only problem now is finding time to get back out there. I'm stuck to weekend fishing now that I'm back to work full time again. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. This website helps with the time in-between. Thanks so much. Bob

Mod, thanks for inviting me to this group.

So, when is the first Bigbluegill.com North American Spoon Chuckers tournament? Two man teams, 15 fish (total weight), and only spoons allowed. A minimal entry fee and payouts to the top 10 teams, or no fee and just the ability to brag about your team's finish. Could be a great time and provide the opportunity to meet Bigbluegill users face to face vs. the "virtual world".

Anytime I'm fishing suspended fish, I'm casting and counting the lure down to the productive layer, and concentrate the retrieve at that depth.....Todays fish were holding unusually deep and we varied the retrieve until we found out what worked (bottom dragging)

Josh, I Googled Swedish Pimple and got their website immediately. I ordered them right from that website. Very Very Easy! Mod, you said you dragged the baits along the bottom. Do you use a lifting "hopping" motion with the spoons or simply drag them on the bottom or a combination of both actions? Also, can they be productive when the fish are suspended in very deep water like 50 feet and holding at 18-25 feet? If so, do you just let it float along as you wind drift or back troll or do you add lifting motion to it as you slide along? Sincerely, Bob

Well first off, I'd like to thank everyone for joining this group....because if you've haven't experienced the madness a spoon can bring to bluegill fishing, your in for a real treat!

My fishing partner and I explored Lake Delavan today in Southeastern Wisconsin.....surface temps were in the mid 70's and most of the bluegill had finished spawning and were positioned down the hill in 15-25 ft.

Todays productive spoons were the 1/12 oz Acme Kastmaster, and the 1/16 oz Blue Fox rattlin' flash spoon in the rainbow trout pattern....normally when we find fish in this depth of water, they typically suspend somewhere within the water column.....today, the fish were pinned to within a foot of the bottom yet eagerly accepted our offerings when the spoons were dragged along the lake floor. We tipped live today using 2 waxworms....on more than one occasion, large Northerns stole our hooked gills today.....I've added a pic of the simple rigging,....be sure and use black barrel swivels and snaps when building this rig....brass tackle will draw ghost hits from juvenile gills.

Wow! This group is taking off like wildfire!

I just picked up a bunch of small Swedish Pimples last week on closeout at the Kearney Cabela's and now I see this spoon chucker thing in my email. Coincidence or fate?
Comment by John Sikkila on July 6, 2009 at 9:44am
I have caught gills on swedish pimples in the past....and small cast masters......been awhile though........fun for sure!....I did catch a gillzilla many years ago on a 4" red and whitespoon( daredevil) while casting for northerns.......lol!
