Ty & I went back to the State Park in Central Illinois and fished for Bluegills. We were using the same set-up as last time (Black and Pumpkin #8 Wade's Blades & waxworms).
Things started off slow, as the fish had spawned and were scattered. So there were lots of "fan casting" and moving slowly along the shoreline to locate fish.
We ended up finding a few spots with males still hovering around the beds. Once you found them the action was pretty fast and furious!
The last place we fished was a shallow flat that held quite a few fish. That's when we hooked into these nice Redear. These fish are incredibly strong and put up a tremendous fight using Ultra-lite tackle.
If you have a lake or pond with Bluegills or Redear near you, get ya some Wade's Blades & waxworms, and get bit!
