How about some fall techniques and ideas for these monsters.....I know the big females are starting to school up here and hold in some holes in the river....gotta love the Aqua-Vu!!

Eggman, the fish in your picture is what I would call a shellcracker.

I think I've caught redear, but I don't have any photographic evidence to prove it. Certainly I haven't caught one in the last 7 years.
There is a lake within an hour or so drive of here that the DNR and other anglers I've talked to swear that it has bluegills and/or redears in the 12" range. I haven't gone down to give it a try yet. I may have to put it on my "must do" list for next year. Can anybody tell me if redears are often caught while ice-fishing? Or what water temps they spawn? Do they spawn in shallow areas like bluegills do, or something different? What baits work best?

Just wondering...would you call the fish on my profile picture a "shellcracker"?
I catch quite a few of these around here!

I "think" I have caught a shell or two...

...on second thought, you can join this group if you know how to spell the word "shellcracker".

I'm a dentist, and an aquaculturist, but yet I still have time to create a group called "The Shellcrackers". Group activities include fishing, drinking Diet Dew, drinking Jack Daniels and figuring out ways to make a cricket stay on a hook. Please join this group, because if you don't, I'll feel like I don't have any friends.
