My sister, BIL, my wife, and I camped at Inks this week in search
of some bluegill action. Water temp was 76F. Bluebird skies
mostly and lots of wind. We stayed in protected coves the
whole time. We caught a lot of beautiful copper nose bluegill
and kept enough to have perch tacos for dinner the three days
we were there. This was my first time to fish Inks since I got
out of school. That's longer than I want to talk about. We will be
going back soon !

We used ultra light spinning tackle with a drop shot rig. Worms, maggots,
or "combo platter" with both baits. Fish were in 4 to 8 feet of water.

Wow, there are a few monsters in there. I've been wondering about that place. I almost took a trip up there a couple weeks ago.

Did y'all catch any sunfish? Or just Bluegill?

Hi J-Moe

The fish we caught were mostly pure copper nose bluegill. A few had
some native bluegill mixed in with them. I caught one red ear and it was
a really good fish. It measured 11 inches and pulled like a freight train
on my 6 pound ultra light. He made 3 drag pulling runs before he slowed
down. They have a beautiful State Park there. That's where we stayed.
The cabins are $50 a night and will sleep 4.
