Do you love big bluegill?
Fished Lake Geneva with Rod Lee today 10am-4:30pm....scoured vast expanses of deep weed edges in search of bluegills between 10am and 2pm.....virtual dead sea. Slid the boat over deep water for a look.....nada.
We headed back to our original starting point in 15 fow for another drift.....following my previous gps track, we drifted bobber sets at 10' down.....and dragged 1/16 oz spoons with the hopes of scraping up a few fish.....I had already chalked the day up as one of sorrow when we hit pay dirt.....large gills, and a few crappies started eating spoons like gang busters.....we anchored down, and proceeded to plow...My partner had a spot in front of the boat that was non-stop on the bobber rig (Ice jigs and waxies).....I stuck with casting a 1/16 Blue Fox rattlin' flash spoon in glo-firetiger, that was yielding good gills on every cast.....this went on for 2 hrs.
Surface temp was 45 deg.....5 degrees colder than any other previously successful spoon outing.
No giants but lots of 8-9" fish......we released the larger specimens, and kept a lions share
