    Default Lookin for lunch

    So off I went to my usual stomping grounds. I havenít kept any fish in months and Iíve been hearing a bluegill sammich calling my name. After the noseeums tied to eat me alive last week I was in no hurry to start early for a repeat performance of that. In about 7 and out about 11, just ahead of the promised rain. Almost one now and the rain just got here,but the timing was good anyway. Boats put away, fish filleted, lunch made and eaten. All I need now is a nap. About 15 bluegills over 8Ē and a couple of crappie and a little bass on the fly rod. Mike and Sylvia stopped by to say hello, good to see yíall. Ran into another friend and made another. Just a real relaxed morning with almost no wind and just a few noseeums. The highlight of the morning came in the form of a catfish. I was pitching my tiny stuff on some Fireline Crystal in 3lb and made a good cast up underneath a tree into maybe a foot of water. One turn on the reel and got a thump and snapped the rod up to set the hook. The water exploded and I couldnít control what just broke water and headed south for open water. Thrashing like a bass a couple of times, but it was the wrong color. Drag slipping, back and forth, under the boat, this went on for a couple of minutes. Finally got him close, but he had other ideas and he left again. Got the net in one hand and he quit stripping so much line. Two or three tries I got him in the net, my new PB for my ultra light tackle at 5lb 12oz on the scale. Doubled up in the net it was an impressive sight. I dropped him over the side and immediately cussed myself for not taking a pic. Brought 6 good gills over 8Ē home for my sammich fix. Filleted and blackened and resting on a bed of mayo and toast, Iím good for a while. Couple of pics of todayís victims in a couple of different phases. Thanks for coming along, hope to see yíall soon. Til the ........Skeet

    I knew what you meant. It did very well. I had a popper bug on it today and the fish were a little slow getting started. I did get a couple on it, one barely hand width in length. The gar started bothering and I switched off. The 3lb Fireline crystal didn’t cast nearly as well as I had hoped. It would do well with a bit heavier jig. Maybe the 2lb variety will do better, this will probably go on a slip float rig I have.

    Have to try that stuff^^^. is that the same stuff you let Sylvia use that morning last year at Swoop ramp? Surprised me when I cleaned them yesterday. All the gills were males, the Shellcrackers were all hens loaded with eggs and ready to pop, and the catfish was loaded with eggs. Gills and shellcrackers all came from the same area except 1.

    I have heard that. Just too dang hot over there with no relief from sun with no shade from trees anywhere. Heck by 9:30 yesterday Sylvia had enough and I tried staying in shade from trees as much as possible.
