SUMMER TIME BLUES
summer has been a hot one. I was fishing the other day and drove a
crossed some bass beds with magnum bluegills on them. I can’t
believe that the bluegills are still on the beds in the middle of
July. This goes to show, you never know what you'll find when you're
out fishing.... However, in the hot summer months I typically fish
for bluegills and crappies in the deeper part of the lake. I like to
go to points and inside turns to find numbers of big bluegills. Some
will be suspended and some will be on the bottom. Let me tell you
what I do to catch these tasty things.
I like to use a slip bobber off the break on the edge of the weeds
where it goes from a few feet to 15 and 20. My choice of slips
floats are Carlisle, they have a great selection and are very
durable. Gamma fluorocarbon line in 4# test is my go to size and
flavor. Tear drops work great in the summer and I use them 90
percent of the time. K & E has a great variety of teardrops in
several colors and styles. For added attraction, I'll use plastics
when I can. I'll also keep a can of wax worms close at hand.
Sometimes wax worms will push them over the top when fishing
suspended bluegills. When the school of fish is on the bottom, I
will use a drop shot rig with a number 10 teardrop my favorite color
is green and chartreuse tipped with a red worm or leech. No matter
what way you try to catch some of these great tasting fish have fun
and be safe.
