Do you love big bluegill?
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.
