The Good Stuff with Bryson and his Mom
Today was another memorable fishing trip with Bryson and his Mom on
. 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 manages 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
deep. I don’t whether 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 nibblett gives off a scent that the bluegill, catfish, and even bass go after. Beautiful Smith Lake
Just one of the big bulls Bryson landed using the microlight 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. microlight with a light action Shimano spinning reel. All the microlights were spooled with 4 lb. test line.

The best of the best for the morning!
