Heat of the Summer Shallow Fishing For Crappie and Blue Gill

Heat of the Summer Shallow Fishing For Crappie and Blue GillI grew up reading all the fishing literature I could get my hands on… when summer time water temps get to the peak. I was schooled hit the deep edge breaks and drop-offs… hit the deepwater flats… fish find relief and comfort in those deep water zones. I was taught and still read literature today.. You want crappie?... you have to go deep for them during the summer periods. Buck Perry Taught the angler, fish move up to the shallow breaks from their deepwater sanctuaries to feed and then move back… following structure along the way. I used to believe… struggled to get those consistent catches in the deepwater sanctuaries. The past 10 years or so I’ve done a nearly complete 180° degrees in my fishing knowledge and methods. I fish the 6-9’ flats over 90% of the time… that is where most of the food is generated in a BOW… the food chain is the hottest in productivity. Sure there are insects on the bottom in the depths to…See More

Cracking the code on Pratt Lake

20170717- I’m considering adding another local lake to my hit list. On two separate trips the past couple days I’ve done some reconnaissance and contour mapping. 10 year history and Back ground check reveals a thin history of trophy B.Gills with one breaking the eleven inch mark… certainly raised my eyebrow a…

Five Lakes Bluegill Trophy Hunt- 2013

After doing a little research on lakes within a twenty mile radius of my location, on the DNR Master Angler website and a call to the local DNR office I was motivated and directed to focus for the Master Angler Bluegill from this lake. My experiences previously on this lake are considerable boat traffic from pleasure as well as a lot of…

Hope you don't mind I had a gentleman Marvin Morgan contact me about his Lowrance chirp finder. He like most other are confused trying to read the manual and understand it. I gave him your name since your the best versed on the subject I don't think you'll mind but if you do I apologize..

Slip-I use a  bead between the bottom of my slip floats to cushion the blow it receives  from banging against the split shot when hook setting and/or  popping the float . Those plastic float stems don't split since I've done that .

Nice Grips but they are larger then most of my catches :).  Did you have any luck with tenkara this year.
