I hope to use this blog as an avenue to express my thoughts and adventures of all of my fishing expeditions and any other journeys I may undertake.

The Good Stuff!!!
Today was another
memorable fishing trip with Bryson and his Mom on BeautifulSmithLake. We had a couple of hours of fishing before the
humidity set in and we lost most of the shade.Bryson is getting to be an accomplished bluegill fisher boy.He still has some work to do in handling the
bigger gills, but today he manage to lip and release the smaller fish he
caught. The crickets and nibblets were the bait of choice for the morning using
a popper and slip shot. All the bluegills were caught in water 8 to 10 feet
I don’t weather you guys
have ever fish for bluegill or catfish with the hook tip with either a white or
chartreuse nibblet, if not you should give it a try. The fish will go after the
nibblet before they inhale the cricket. It is really an excellent attractor to
get the fish interested especially on slow days. The slim that is emitted from
the nibblet gives off a scent that the bluegill, catfish and even bass go after.
Just one of the big bulls
Bryson landed using the micro light combo, he is still working on the casting
technique; the landing technique he has mastered.
This big bull is the
largest Jenny has ever landed on Smith. I wish I had my scales with me today to
weight it, I am sure it would have pushed a pound. She landed it using the 7 ½
ft. micro light with a light action Shimano spinning reel. All the micro lights
were spooled with 4 lb. test line.
