Do you love big bluegill?
After taking yesterday off due to stiffness and pain I decided to hit Wixom Lake with the Kayak for some panfish jigging the lite stuff. Took a slip bobber to do double duty with the B’Gill tight to the bank and laydowns. We did so well a couple days ago with both Crappie and B’Gills I thought I would extend the streak.
Once down at the lake and ready to launch I noticed I forgot the transducer for the sonar. So I would just be using the mapping on the Elite 4 – HDI … fishing old school it is. So I shoved off and tagged a Crappie on one of my first casts. Good start I thought. Using my GPS and Insight Genesis map on the Elite 4 HDI I positioned myself on weedy points, inside and outside bends. The crappies were tagged (caught) quite readily. The great fishing and weather continues! Crappies ranged from 8 to 11.5” great sport on the Ultra Lite equipment. Struck out on the B’Gill with slip bobbers in all my key spots. Caught a jumbo 8.6” B’Gill on a 2” Power Minnow mixed in with the Black Crappie.
