Bluegills!

Recommended Posts

Garett Svir

Hey all, thanks for welcoming me to the HSO family! I got out and did some bluegill fishing yesterday. I started fishing in 12 fow, near a weed island. Area had sparse curly pond weed. Caught lots of bluegills but average size was poor. Moved out to a main lake point on rocks, and a little deeper water and found some bulls. Also caught some incidental bass while probing the depths. These fish were in much smaller pods, sometimes even lone bulls. Just thought I'd share. Tight lines!

Thanks for sharing and welcome to HSO. My annual bull gill trip is still 3 weeks away and reports like this starting to get me excited.

I took my niece out last night on the mighty Mississip for some cats. The fishing was good but bugs were BAD. She landed 8 cats, and broke 2 off on her own set up before switching to my heavy gear. I'm thinking of getting one of those full body mesh bug suits. How are you catching the walleyes ? Leadcore??

I dont use the led core on the river much for cranks. I find that three way rigs work better for me. I have been getting my eyes pitching jigs and crawlers to the current edges.

Going out this weekend to chase some gills for my fiances grandpa. He is getting out the nursing home and all he has been talking about some fresh fish. I have spots that I can go and catch some gills, but we will be in the St. Cloud area and don't want to drive back another hour. If someone can PM me and help a friend out that would be great. I will trade spots in the Annadale/metro area if you would like.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
