Myself and Mike USMC-GY fished the Guadalupe River from 7am till 2pm and the Pre Front Bluegill bite was on FIRE! We started at daybreak fishing for trout but the bite was super slow. We caught only trout and had a couple "get offs". We then headed down river and found some hungry nice Bluegill. We caught over 50 fish. Half of them were in the 7 to 9 inch range. Mike caught the BIG ONE of the day a 10.25" Gill on a live minnow with a slip float. Most of the gills were caught on worms using bottom and slip float techniques. Fish were holding in 10 to 12 feet of water next to docks and brush piles. All fish were released to fight again! After a day on the Guadalupe we headed to the Pic A Taco located in beautiful down town Mcqueeney for a GREAT late breakfast. Starting the week out catching some Pre Front Gills. It just don't get any better! fish

Mega Dittos on that. I was out on Dunlap this past Thursday. My all time low for perch on that lake. Only caught
2 keeper size fish and one was an accidental on a crappie, the other a red ear. Even small perch was slow.

Can't complain because this lake has been so good to me the past year !

Sunfish bite has been slow all winter long. I have had a couple of good days this past week. thumb

Great seeing a Bluegill post. Nice ones Guys. Good job.




Side Note: Any idea of the first spawn? Also prediction of the upcoming sunfish season?

Thanks "Gitter" for the reply. cheers As for the spawn late April to early May. Once the bass get through with their spawn the Sunfish usually start spawning. thumb

Thanks for the information. Bluegill can not compete with a bass on spawning space.
