I'm not a huge fan of chasing big buckets of of their spawning beds...The schools of large pan fish lurking in the weeds next to the nests are just waiting for the opportunity to clean them out. This is what I ran into today. The bass are on their beds..the spawn is on...The pan fish are I took advantage of it and had a great day testing some new fly prototypes and playing with the new 40lb thrust motor I have rigged to my yak. I was able to explore the lake in it's entirety...which I have never been able to do can only paddle so far...I've been searching for carp feeding grounds for a year, and think I may have finally discovered's the photos...lot's of pan gills, crappie, perch, rock bass...of course there is a mix of smallies and a few buckets in there as well....enjoy...more on the new flies when I finalize the designs...

I also had the opportunity to watch some snapping turtles getting ready to make some little snapping about a violent one point he had her whole neck in his mouth...

There were about 15 of these red eared sliders on this fallen tree...under the tree were schools of crappie...

This little guy accidently got hooked in the leg and brought into my boat for a safe release...first time I have ever caught a red eared slider with a fly..

    Waht a haul--those bluegill and redear are awesome on the fly. I am in my quest to land 100 super bull bluegills during the spawn. I am 38 away after tomorrow's post. What wt and length fly are using to land all these fish? Thanks for sharing a great trip

  2. I am super appreciative of it all, thanks!


  3. I'm right with you on not targeting spawning big mouths. Some of those bluegill are awesome. Way to go

  4. I am new to this site, so I know these posts are late, still ... That's the kind of day ... wow!
    I don't know about anybody else, but most of those panfish (bream, sunfish) would've ended up filleted and fried.
