birthday trip

Recommended Posts

got today to spend my birthday doing what i love and that is fishing.  despite the high winds, i caught a bunch of them today.  around a dozen keepers, and most were fat k's.  the other day, one that i caught on a tube spit up a crawdad and it was a dead match for our bluegill skirt.  so, today, i used a 3/8 GrassJig with a buzzcut bluegill skirt and trimmed down a small chunk type trailer and it seemed to be the ticket.  bites were from 10 to 20 ft.  caught them on bluff ledges and also out on gravel chunk mixture.  for area, i will just say that no one seems to want to fish where i have been fishing.  have not seen any boats at all.  one thing that i will say about another clue you need to look for before just fishing some where, and that is there needs to be the presence of shad nearby.  if you do not see any bait hanging around close, you need to just move on until you see some.
