Taking out bluegill 2 at a time

Next time if you ever find your self catching a lot of bluegill in a very short amount of time try putting 3 hooks at once. The set up i do is i have a small bass sinker at the bottom. USing 6 pound test line, then about 12" up i have a #10 hook then 7" up another # 10 hook then another 7" up i tie another hook on. Baited with wax worms. Sometimes i catch a fish on all three of my hooks but that is kind of hard to reel in with 3 different gill swimmin in different directions.

First Good Panfish Trip of the Year!

Okay, after a string of 65 degree days I thought it was about time to head out and see if the gills were biting in one of my local ponds, Heck, the ice was just off only 8 days ago, but the following weather has been way above normal. Could they be biting? Yesssss!

I started off with a 1/100 th oz thread-bodied hairjig, like Ledhead and Jim Simkins use for those bruiser California gills. Floated it on a… Continue

Green Sunfish and Warmouth's New Jerseys 'Potentially Dangerous' Sunfish

Hey People -Wanted to tell you all that the Green Sunfish and the Warmouth are both considered 'potentially dangerous' species in New Jersey.Was reading through the 2010 New Jersey Fish and Wildlife Digest and these two'criminals' were listed along with 8 others.According to the state because of their bigmouths they are too competitive to the other smaller mouthed native Sunfishes like Blue gills and Sunfish.The state wants anglers to kill these fish and send specimens into their…

white bass action

went fishin' today did ok I only caught two white bass on some roadrunners off in a creek out from the main river the fish were in that pre-spawn mode which was kind of surprisin' considerin' how cold it still was and how fat they were for there size. but it was worth lossin' a couple of jigs and hangin' up some times. but they were hugged to the bottom of the creek and they were at the openin' of the creek, I think they were followin' them shads around and the water in the creek was…

Quest, With a little help from my Friends

This quest began with Tommy Winton, of Florida. He was posting pictures of MASS QUANTITIES of Blue Gill and Red Ears. The picture that got the ball rolling was his picture titled "86 Gill and Shells". Reading thru the comment found out he had caught them on crickets fished in 12" of water on bottom. One of Tommy's quotes is " If they not hitting CRICKET they are not going to touch anything!"

I am a flyrodder so live bait is not an option and began working on a sinking cricket pattern.…

Playing the 2lb. card

Every so often I have a fishing trip that will remain in my memory for a long, long time. I can't say forever, as I haven't reached that stage in my life yet. I can remember unbelievable catch rate trips, first fish trips, and of course everyone remembers big fish trips. Today's trip doesn't fall into any of those trip types. In all actuality, the fishing was below average. The company however was top shelf material.

I was to meet an indivual I knew only through the www.…

We got fed up!!

There are so many trips that I run into an individual who looks down their nose and says, "Yeah, I like fishing for bluegill too when nothing else is biting."

Today, I was just waiting for that person to come along. I needed their help - badly. I needed someone, who believes that bluegill are so easy to catch, that pretty much anything will do.

It didn't.

It doesn't.

I spent so much time simply trying to figure out what I needed to do and how I needed to…

BOAT SEAT

I will post a picture in a couple of weeks. My first trip out. Does anyone know where a guy can purchase a frame that 2 seats can be mounted on. This so 2 guys can set in front for spider rigging? I sure won't put casters on it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

boat seat

I just mounted a boat seat on a base from an old office chair , with wheels. I hope I will like my idea. That will let me more mobile in the front of the boat. Who says you have to fish from one spot. I need a little exercise.
