I found an amazing honey hole, and would like advice on catching the big ones.
I went there last summer and was catching 5-7" green sunfish on crappie jigs on every cast.
Last weekend, just walking the shore, you could see hundreds of 3" bluegill, and literally tens of thousands of 1" hatchlings.
They were swarming the jig, and I was catching plenty, but they were all small.
There was a lot of vegetation, which meant I was either pulling in fish or weeds.
It's part of the drainage system coming out of the airport, leading into a creek. This section is separated by two spillways about 120 yards apart. Most of it is filled with sediment, and is too shallow to fish, but there are some deeper spots, maybe up to 5ft deep.
Do you think the bigger ones are still there, and how would you go about catching them?
For the record, I'm using a light action pole with 6lb green Trilene XL.
