Chasing Bluegills Again

Chasing Bluegills Again

The sprawling pond I chose for enjoying the beautiful weather was drenched in mid-afternoon sun that caused the bluegill population to locate 4 to 5 feet deep at the base of the coontail weedline. Sink-tip line cast parallel to the weeds¬†counted to 4 feet and slowly activated with 2-inch strips were the strategy. Size-10 black Bully’s Bluegill Spiders were repeatedly inhaled by 7-1/2- to 9-1/2-inch bluegills that fought valiantly and caused the tip of the 5-weight rod to dance wildly. Pure fun!
