Do you love big bluegill?
Early this afternoon started with some bad choices… I decided to head out on a cool blustery afternoon out on one of the toughest lakes in the neighborhood… at the dock I decided to head south on the reservoir towards some good P’seed havens. Water temp at the dock was low 60’s. Further south I went the temperature was dropping… mid to upper 50’s at the extreme south end where current is channeled between two legs of the reservoir…. Not good… the creek feeders seemed dead at this end so I decided to go a few miles north to an area that warms very quickly. A good spot at the early season.
As I was headed north the weather began to change… sun came out warmed up instantly. The wind also died a bit. Watching the sonar for fish nothing deep or at the first break line... Stopped and hit a few historically good for me shorelines spots … nothing. Pulled into a good spot at the upper reaches of the creek arm and joined a boat that was presently fishing. Asked if they had any luck and they responded “few hits”. Not good I thought. Proceeded to fish and wham… one fish after another for the next few hours… I had dinner in 20mins time. Went on to the GOPRO and captured a hour and a half of nonstop action… very few jumbo fish… but just fun overall.
Fish were all caught on 1/32 and 1/16 oz jig heads with YAMMA MINNOW 2.5” and Berkley Power minnow type soft plastic baits
