sunday i went to my friends pond to catch some bluegill for cut bait. i was just using worm and a cork. i got 10 gills and 2 HUGE minnows i dont know how they got in the pond but they was 5 to 6 inches long and 2 inches tall. i used them in the ohio river chopped head and tail off and threw it out. first 5 minutes caught 6 lb blue 5 min later 4 lb blue then little later 2 lb channel. had blue gill and shad guts and crawlers on my other poles in same spot and never got a bite. to bad i only had two big minnows cause never got bite when they was gone. wonder why they wouldnt eat anything else.
