BLUE GILLS ARE SNAPPING

Post by Splash One on Sun 03 Apr 2011, 10:27 pm

So I went down to the pond and the bite was pretty good.. I got there when the sun was still pretty high, which... at this pond means the fish stay deep, so I used a weighted fly that was made for bonefish.... I started catching micro bass right off the bat... I must have caught a dozen.... as the sun started to go down I switched to a foam grasshopper... once the sun went behind the trees and the skeeters came out, it was game on...1/2 and 1 pound gillies started attacking my hopper...I even had one hit so hard it came out of the water... I videoed most of the session... had the settings messed up, will check out the footage and see if it's worth posting...

Oh and I took a frog about the size of a dime and pinned it to my hopper... BAAAAM... I am thinking about going and catching a bunch and shooting a bluegill video using nothing but frogs for bait...

Blue Gills are Snapping

I have a 1 1/2 acre pond on my farm and I noticed this weekend the Bluegill beds are stating to show up. Our Bass have already spawned and are hungry for some worm action. Bluegills here in the south will be in full bloom the first full moon in May. Crickets on a Brim Buster are the trick or for faster action Beetle spins on light tackle.
