Big M area, August 10

Well I armed myself with crawlers and crickets and went out in pursuit of the elusive bluegill.  Not quite as bad of a fail as last time, I caught 3 gills big enough to keep and a 10" redear.  Picked up 10 spotted bass here and there.  Fished a lot of places, just can't find them except a few here and there.  

Saw Mr. Babler on the lake, he had picked up a few bass early.  

Seemed to be quite a few fishermen out there today.

I'm more of a stream guy than lake guy.   But I tend to catch the bluegill more in areas they can be protected.   Tree roots,  grassy areas,  cut out banks,  etc.   I know crickets were mentioned before, but a couple YouTubers I follow swear by the gulp minnows on a 1/16 Oz jighead.

        FWIW in my experience at table rock, if I can find a group of them, they will eat a whole crawler better than a chunk of one.  There have been multiple times where we would see them on the graph or catch a few, drop down pinched crawlers, crickets, plastic baits only to catch a hand full of small to med sized ones.  But as soon as we would go back to the big crawler the size and numbers went way up, in addition to catching any other species in the area.
