Several cool evenings have invigorated the bluegill populations. They are spending longer periods on and near the shallow flats feeding to build reserves for the coming winter. Olive Bully’s Bluegill Spiders cast to the edge of the flats and counted down (one thousand one, one thousand two, etc.) to a depth of 3 feet before imparting action provided consistent action. Many strikes came on the vertical drop and others on the first short strip. A 10-incher’s valiant fight provided a fitting end to a memorable evening.
