Aggressive Slashbait Sunnies

Tuesday I hit the private lake again to find gills and seeds nesting. The lure I stuck with was a 4cm hot mustard muddler Rapala X-Rap.

While doing a slashbait retrieve with a few pauses and twitches, those bulls and pumpkinseeds were going crazy! The seeds were the ones being the most aggressive. Caught a total of 4 bulls, 3 seeds, and 1 yellow perch.

Also threw a 1/16 ounce white maribu right in front of many. Bluegills weren't too interested but those…

Topwater Sunnies and Calicos

Sunday afternoon and evening a buddy and I hit a CT lake up his way.

What was working for me was that same 7cm firetiger Original Floater. I was carefully twitching the lure on the surface with occasional 3 second pauses. Plenty of swirls, love taps, and jumps. Caught a total of 4 pumpkinseeds, 2 bluegills, and 5 calicos.

Brought 3 calicos home and found 2 of them to be pregnant.

Bulls

Wednesday I hit the private lake that caught me the PB 14 ounce bluegill.

I hit the same area that produced for me last time and had bullgills hitting a 7cm firetiger Rapala Original Floater. All were around 9" and weighed 12 and 13 ounces.

2 took the entire rear treble and all were hard fighters.

Total was 5 with 3 being pregnant females.

Trophy Catch

Tuesday I hit a small pond that is part of the brook that feeds the other 2 ponds I've been reporting about.

I saw many yellow perch cruising the shore and caught 1 with a 1/16oz white maribu. Others would just stare at it and then leave.

I switched over to a 2" double rigged soft plastic trout worm. That had the gills going! Worked the worm slowly just under the surface with a gliding walk the dog motion. Bluegills were chasing it and would hit it a lot, but…

New PB Bull!

Tuesday while I was fishing the private lake that caught caught me all of those perch last month and those nice bulls last year, I hit a nice one!

Was throwing a 4cm silver shad Rapala Jointed Shad Rap when I get a nice hit. It felt like I was reeling in a decent yellow perch that kept on getting grabbed hard by a big largemouth. I get it in and caught a new personal best bluegill! 9 1/2 inch 14 ounce bull which beat my old one by 1 ounce!…
