The fishin mission was big bluegill and although we got the mission accomplished, we certainly had to work for it. The lake we hit was really low and it certainly changed the layout of vegetation that my friend and I were used to, when it comes to the vegetation in the water. We fished about 3/4 of the lake from the bank and after multiple hours of fishing, had one BIG bluegill between the two of us(10 inches on the dot)...We were discouraged and on our heading out and decided to fish one last spot.......Thank goodness we did!!
Largemouth bass were stacked in the section of water we were fishing, and a few were even on beds. Along with them were a handfull of fat bluegill as well. We stayed and fished the next few hours and had an incredible time!
Ned Rigging with 1/16oz -1/20oz ball head jigs and mushroom head jigs, with either 2" green pumpkin colored swimbaits or the small rattlin ned from googan baits (California Craw) landed all our fish. Bass ranged from 1LB to a little over 3 LBS but all fat...Bluegill ranged from 8 inches to a little over 10 inches with 2 MA Gills landed for the day.
