"   Jeffrey, just wondering how much of your fishing is done with telescopic gear vs. casting gear? My wife prefers a cane pole and does pretty good with it when with me in the boat."

More From The Weekend.....

"    Thank you Jeffrey for the reply on hooking crickets. I always hooked them through the collar, but the fish would get about all the cricket except the head and not get hooked. I will try the way you put them on the hook and not worry…"

More From The Weekend.....

"Jeffrey, I know you fish a lot. I'm envious of all the fish you catch. I guess you use a crickets a lot. I like to use them also, but not sure of the best way to hook them. Do you try to keep them alive on the hook? Any advice you could give…"

John M. Grimes replied to Smoltz's discussion Full moon and the spawn?
"  I know I'm late to this discussion, but we fished yesterday 8/6/2020, 3 days after the full moon. I cleaned a few of the fish and found eggs in 2 of them. Are these late spawners or do female Bluegill spawn more than 1 time a year?"

Just an added point....if you don't mind spending a little more...k-drill makes a really light anger...it has of course steel blade head but some sort of fiber flights (?) I think strikemaster makes one too.
