Bull to Hen ratios

I frequently fish a small local lake in my hometown of Antioch that shares the same name. This 77 acre gem is man made, and is a shallow dishpan type lake with a max depth of 10 ft.

 

Once a weed choked, and almost unfishable body of water, lake Antioch had only been a home to stunted 3-4" gills, and an occasional big Bass. Several years ago, lake management through local associations initiated a weed kill program that turned the lake around.

 

8-9" gills are now…

  New to fishing for blue gills. What are the habits of the blue gill? Anyother info on  blue gill fishing would be appreciated. We fish for crappies in the pad and deep water on a lake here in florida. What type of bait do you use?  Thanks for any info.....Gary

Bad News Comes In Spades

Okay, so you remember that truck of mine. Well, the weld made on the clutch arm broke this morning on the way to work. It was a crappy weld, anyway.

Make a mental note, folks - crappy welds do not hold up.

Not a block from my house, I depressed the clutch and it went, "POP. That sickening pedal-to-the-floor thump came next and there I was, no shift - no nuttin'. Dang!

Luckily, I got the thing back in gear using the synchro and was able to putt-putt it back to the house…

Life Beside Fishing

My other thing next to fishing is cycling. Well, to be honest - I've been cycling in recent years more than fishing.

I ride about 20 miles per day to and from work, except in the coldest part of the winter. I'm late getting back in the saddle this season though, and today was my first run of the Spring. I "aired" up the tires, lubed the chain and got everything tuned - and I was off!

 

In short, things went well and I didn't end up in some ditch gasping out my last…

Truck is back

I got the clutch actuator arm welded back together today and she's been test driven - all's well.

Welding skills are alright, but the little Lincoln buzz-box I had was a little slack. If she's still in good shape next weekend, I'll finally make it out to wet some bait.

I gots me a mess of Berkley Gulp! and Powerbait goodies, too - Fish Fry, Maggots, worms and wigglies... so we'll see how those stack up.

I also whipped up a batch of my first ever, panfish Dry Chum Mix.…

Well - this really stinks

Okay, I dont have to work tomorrow (FRIDAY) except to make a few client calls. "Heck, I can do that from the river bank," Im thinking "...so Im going fishing!"

So what happens? I get in the truck this morning, press in the clutch pedal and SNAP! It lets go with a sickening feel and goes right to the floorboard. The damn actuator arm broke clean off.

First thing out of my mouth - "Summbitch - there goes Friday's fishing!!"

 

The truck can be fixed, but I cant get a…

HATS OFF TO BILL MODICA...SPOON GURU!

Hey y'all, I don't know how many have seen it yet, but the latest In Fisherman magazine ( May 2011) has an outstanding feature article by our own Bill Modica on the pleasures and pursuits of using spoons for big gills! This is exciting stuff, as bill has long been advocating the use of these techniques on this site. Detailed rigs and tactics are again focused, as are many of his tutorial videos found on this site.

Like many of you, I was somewhat skeptical when I first read and heard…
