Got a tip from my buddy Shelby about the big bluegill at this new lake.He was using them for bait but I'm lookin to catch my dinner. I had been out to look at it but was having some battery problems with my 36 volt motor....so I hadn't been fishing there. It was 40 degrees and misty and overcast not exactly the time of year I normally go bluegill fishin'. I normally am out looking for the spawners in the heat of summer. They tend to scatter and the bigger ones move to deeper water this time of the year. I had some corrosion on the connector to my depth finder so it wasn't working not a good omen for exploring a new lake.I tried bobbers and worm around some standing timber and visible cover and had no bites for an hour.I was gonna pack it in and go to OLathe to troll for saugeyes.So I took the bobber off and drifted back towards the boat ramp freelining a worm and a splitshot about 6 inches above it.I immediately caught a 10" bluegill. So I rigged another rod and proceeded to drift for the next 3 hours and caught 21 keepers. I was gonna take a picture of a steaming platter of delicious deep-fried bluegill fillets but my wife and kids had already demolished them when I got home from work.There were 20 left I ate about a dozen and my seven year old son ate the rest pushing his total to 15 pieces. To say my family likes to eat bluegill and crappie would be a massive understatement. They are spoiled if my wife goes to the grocery store and buys another kind of fish they won't eat it.I know where I will be next weekend.I'm gonna load up my boat with kids and load up the livewell with gills.I already stocked up on size 10 hooks.
