Do you love big bluegill?
My buddy and I got into a few nice ones late this afternoon....just as I arrive to the lake (3:00pm), I see him running for a flag....he sticks, and lands a tank Largemouth...21".....I fire up the gas auger and zort a half dozen holes, then set up my boards.......I fire up the vex, and on the first time down, I stick a behemoth greenie.
For the next hour and a half, fishing is dead....a half dozen dink gills and craps....no flags. 4:30 rolls around, and I decide to wrap it up...walk over to my first set, and she pops.....smokes the spindle....screams out over 100' before she stops...thought at first to be a small bass on a serious bolt....ended up to be a big girl on a big run...21.5"
Both fish were caught on large golden roaches, set 6' down over 8' near the lake basin....and released.
Ice depth 10"
