    We got there about 8:30, by 9:30 we had all the bluegill we needed and more. Stayed til the lake closed and only managed four Blues. Caught a 7 lb, two 4 lbers and a 2 lber. Better luck next time, I hope!

    Water is still cold, try downsizing your cut bait to "bite size" pieces..... if that doesn't work then dynamite and dip net :smile2:
