Title: Gillbait
Post by: FM on May 18, 2016, 12:33:34 PM
There some nice bluegills to be had over at Frances Slocum SP. I was there yesterday for small gills for catfish livebait. As hard as I tried, all I could catch were big ones, table fare. Action was centered around the backend access area.

Anything taking insects off the top ?   "back end access area"  =  boat rental area ?

Grabbed a dozen and a half more baits today. Had to take bigger than I wanted but, the bigger the bait the bigger the catch. I can still pick up the smaller fish with some cut bait chunks and when something takes an 8 inch gill it will be worth while.
