Revisiting my Big Bluegill Site

I know many of you save your favorite sites especially those that deal with fishing. I have numerous fishing sties that I have saved over the years. Every so often usually once a year I update the sites and discard the ones I don’t visit anymore and revisit a few that catches my attention. While organizing yesterday, I found my old bluegill site that I created back in 2010 on Big Bluegill Website. I noticed while visiting the site they had given it a new look but still keep the same format. The site now shows the number of individuals who are visiting while you are logged in which I like.

I decided I would reacquaint myself with the group so I did a short post on my Pelican Boat I purchased in 2014. I also updated all my images. The website is similar to a fishing forum and the closest I will ever get to a Face book type page. One can just post an image with a comment similar to Face book and get a quick comment.

I hope to post a few of my bluegill outings there this season which begins in a few weeks.

The Good Stuff!!!

Today was another memorable fishing trip with Bryson and his Mom on Beautiful Smith Lake. We had a couple of hours of fishing before the humidity set in and we lost most of the shade.  Bryson is getting to be an accomplished bluegill fisher boy.  He still has some work to do in handling the bigger gills, but today he manage to lip and release the smaller fish he caught. The crickets and nibblets were the bait of choice for the morning using a popper and slip shot. All the bluegills were caught in water 8 to 10 feet deep.

I don’t weather you guys have ever fish for bluegill or catfish with the hook tip with either a white or chartreuse nibblet, if not you should give it a try. The fish will go after the nibblet before they inhale the cricket. It is really an excellent attractor to get the fish interested especially on slow days. The slim that is emitted from the nibblet gives off a scent that the bluegill, catfish and even bass go after.
Just one of the big bulls Bryson landed using the micro light combo, he is still working on the casting technique; the landing technique he has mastered.

This big bull is the largest Jenny has ever landed on Smith. I wish I had my scales with me today to weight it, I am sure it would have pushed a pound. She landed it using the 7 ½ ft. micro light with a light action Shimano spinning reel. All the micro lights were spooled with 4 lb. test line.

The best of the best for the morning!
