Do you love big bluegill?
So, I'm in central Virginia and I know in small ponds the bream are probably spawning already, on larger impoundments maybe in prespawn mode. I have caught several 'gills and 'crackers with roe in…Continue

I bought an inflatable boat the other day to try to get out after some of the bigger fish that I'm guessing are away from the shoreline here in August. (really shallow pond, maybe 4 acres, a couple of 7 foot holes, but mostly about 3-5 feet. Been catching a TON of tiny 'gills, redear and yellow perch on the shoreline).
I spent a whole day out on the pond in my little boat. Fished downed limbs, submerged points, and the deepest holes I could find with ice jigs tipped with worm and…Continue

I finished work early today and headed out to my favorite pond. I tried a quill float for the first time, and that is all I'll ever use to hang ice jigs under unless I have no choice...that thing was so sensitive, and I realize that I have missed HUNDREDS of fish in the past because of my float.

Hey Sean thanks for the Friend reqest.....Indeed the beds are prominent on the Albemarle.....many years it starts on the Full Moon in May but the moon cycle was early this year so our local gills have pushed shallow in the last few weeks and are piled up on the bank this week......we're five days into a prevailing southwest wind which holds our water high and the fish like this.....I've documented over 500 bluegill colonies over the last fifteen years......I've caught fish off the same bedding zones every year since 2005 when I began to log them........
