Micro Bluegill Wednesday
Went back to my local County Park for a little micro fishing for Bluegill. The set-up for the day was a single #10 shot, .8 lb ASSO test line and my Soyokaze Rod. I also used a new plastic bait from ISG. The bait was their plankton series micro amoebas in red. The bait was very easy to manage and comes with about 16 to a package. I'm guessing after preparation, you should about 150+ 1.5mm baits per package. Bluegill were very attracted to the bait and I was able to land over 40 in the 2-3 inch range in about 1.5 hours. My smallest was about 2.1 inches pictured above.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
