SHINNERS SHINNERS SHINNERS! Use lil 2" fathead minnows and target the cyrpress knees with water dropping off to the 8 to 12ft range around them. This months full moon should turn them on to bedding. There running the banks here in Mobile Al. in the delta and on there way to the spawning grounds. Next month water temps should be in the upper 70s so remember to take a basket of crickets and use 2 poles. Your may be lucky and find yourself a bed of gills around the shallow ends of those thick thick treetops while your crappie fishing. I promise your gonna catch a few bass while using fathead minnows so be ready when your fighting him out of the tops with super ultra light tackle.

Take a kid fishing with you.

Anthony the best advice i can give is if what your doing isnt working go back the the stone age and try the simplest form of fishing you can think of that always works for me. wax worms n a bobber is always good if there are lots of fish. if its all babies you catch throw a teaser rod to lure smaller fish and use another pole with more bait and or artificial with a sliver of live bait.

Hey Anthony, thanks for the friendship offer.

Most of the ten inch and larger bluegills that I have caught throughout my life have been fish from small farmponds or small, overlooked public lakes that just don't get the attention of the bigger waters. About 90 % of them were caught on livebait like garden worms or nightcrawlers and at least 50% of those fish were caught throughout the winter months during mild winters...probably the complete opposite of what most gill guys will tell you. For public lakes in your region, I'd surf the net for the top producers of citation gills and concentrate on those lakes.

For slab crappies, alot of the 13 to 16 inch fish have come from public lakes during a timeframe when the size-structure of the fish are on the upswing. Most crappie waters go through up and down 'cycles' where fish are smallish for several years and then they start to yield bigger slabs for a few seasons. Every lake has a different 'cycle' and some lakes kick out monsters for many years in succession. Again, reserch from baitshops and the net , will help put you on waters that are currently producing the bigger fish.

Takes a little work, but well worth it! Good Luck! Jim Gronaw

Hi there Anthony, I am Michael--aka ole giller---aka ole Mike. lol Since you have caught a 1 pounder, you are right on track for locating the bigguns. The thing I might do that most don't, might be downsizing. Many of our larger gills come on 1/80 oz. down to 1/164th oz. jigs and flies and often tip with a waxworm. I am raising European Red Worms--aka Giant Red Worms and they worked well last fall also, You are in big gill and Red Ear country, I envy the fishery you have down that way. ole Mike

In a nutshell, fish light line 4 lb. or smaller, fish lakes and rivers that have a reputation for big bluegills and start by fishing the drop offs close to the bedding areas in 15 to 30 feet of water. Use small jigs, 1/64 th ounce is my favorite with little or no extra wieght.
