Surface Action in 57 Degree Water With What Else "BOOGLE BUGS POPPERS"
My first trip to
fish for the spots proved to be surprising for top action using the
Boggle Bugs Popper. My buddy Charles and I were a little late getting on the
water and missed most of the surface action, but we did manage to find out that
the spots will take a popper in 57 degree water. The lake was 3 ½ ft. above
full pool and super clear. Smith Lake
Fat 13” spot and one that really put up a fight on the 6 wt. That is what I love about this fish, it will give you all it’s got on any weight fly rod you may be using.
The first spot of the morning, which gave Charles a fight on his 5 weight; both fish were released because they fell into the slot limited the lake enforces.
Even the bull bluegills couldn’t resist the Boogle Bugs on top in this cold water this morning. This guys is worthy of the quest, because he gave my 6 weight a respectable bend. I am now 49 away from the quest. The full moon will be on the 27th. this month and that is when the bluegill action will really heat up on this lake, I am counting the days.
