07.03 First cast, are you kidding me?

Postby RonG » Jul Mon 03, 2017 10:21 pm

I did great yesterday evening, landing 18 bass on Dingers and Crappie Sliders. I noticed the action to be better on the little Sliders, even getting just as many bigger bass on the 1.5" Sliders as I was getting on the 5" worms, but with casts. Since they were loving swim baits, I decided to go back tonight, but with with larger swim baits.

First cast I landed this brute.

Goofy gill hit a 4" Keitech on a 1/8 oz jig. :shock:

Last night had bigger numbers. Tonight bigger fish. All the pics are from tonight.

Yeah those gills can be pigs. Biggest bluegill I ever caught took a 7" Texas rigged Powerworm. If I ever caught a true 1 lb bluegill, that was it. Gotta revere those bucketmouths too. Sounds like you slayed 'em.

Way to go Ron. Great job as usual. You have that pond so dialed in. How was the new reel?

Check your private messages for a few pond updates.

The 2 new Pflueger Purists are great, both the UL and the one I'm bassing with. There's a lot more click increments on the drag than I'm used to, so it took a few adjustments while fighting fish to get the drags dialed in. I just threw the bass reel on an old Fin-Nor rod that I'm not crazy with. Today, I'll transfer it to a St. Croix, then I'll be really pleased. :)
