Brainerd Lakes Area Bluegills!

Recommended Posts

Sportland_Bait

Had a great morning chasing bluegills. The weather has finally shaped up and let us fish outside the house. After popping a few holes I hopped around. Nothing in the first few holes and then bingo the Marcum lit up. I had two hot holes going and the gills were hungry. They were roaming 13-15 feet of water on the smaller lake I was on. They just couldn't resist a wiggler or two on a Custom Jigs Nuclear Ant. I also had pretty good success with a Lindy Genz Bug. The size of the fish was nice and they were a few smaller fish mixed in but the action was great for the two hours I put in. I think it is a sign that the late ice action is soon to begin. If the weather holds out I hope to get out a few more times in the near future. It should be a great weekend. The keys to success today was:

1. Fishing unpressured water

2. Small but active baits

3. Keep moving until you find them ( They were ready to bite)

Good luck this weekend!

Well said Jason. Bluegill fishing has been going very strong lately with a few slabs mixed in. We've been gettin them on 1/16th ounce forage minnows spoons tipped with a waxie, gulp or just plain has been working great too. The bass and pike action has been excellent on tip-ups using bigger sucker minnows. The 30-40 inch pike have been coming on the really big suckers. Look for them in 12-17 Fow off the reed edges and keep the NOISE to a minimum. Can't stress that one enough. Alot of the schools are only about half way down and will move on with too much noise. Like Jason said keep moving til you find a productive hole and find a quiet spot. Heres a bonus bass from last night and a nice sunset to top it off.

      Hey, Oakley is one of my favorite brands, but now many suppliers of wholesale sunglasses are accessible on the Internet selling sunglasses in bulk.

      Hi there, Polarized sunglasses of lens color like a grey base lens with a blue mirror is the way to go or for freshwater and inshore an amber, rose or copper lens with a green mirror are lenses that can be worn. My father is also a fisherman, So, I bought wholesale sun glasses for him from some useful sites. I always prefer to buy sunglasses in bulk, as buying bulk gives a number of choices to wear and it is also affordable in cost.

      Hey Guys, I'm wondering what the water temp on the St.Croix is. I Haven't herd anything, all I know is that Catfish become inactive after it drops below 60F. I want to know if they have already become inactive, you would think we would at least have until October.    One more inquire,  anyone one know about a nice carp lake north of the metro. Most people don't like fishing for common carp, but they are a great fall fish to catch when they Get 30+ plus pounds.
