I was inspired by Queue 's panfish post and decided to give it a try myself. It's April, so they must be biting. Right? Well it turned out to be a tough morning for me. I tried three areas where I usually do well this time of year with no luck. I did catch a bass that was about three pounds, but that was it for the bass, which can sometimes be a nuisance when you are fishing for panfish. Finally, I metered some suspended fish and gave them a try. They were from 7 to 10 feet deep over about 30 feet of water. They turned out to be nice bluegill, no monsters but good quality. No redear bit today at all. After a while the overcast broke and the sun came out. That was the end of it. I had hoped maybe they had just moved deeper, but that did not work. Here are a couple that were invited home for supper. They made the cut by coming in just under 12 inches. In my estimation bluegill over 12 inches are trophy size, and I like to release them for someone else to get the thrill of caching one that big.
