. I then lost that jig and tied on a yellow head purple body jig and the same thing happened more gills [Linked Image]
And even a small warmouth [Linked Image] now for the weird part we were fishing in 20fow with only the moon for light and we were catching fish on the bottom. I also caught crappie on the same purple jig but didnt catch any gills on any other jig color besides the purple jig hmmm

Those are some nice slabs Leo. Your jigs really show up nice! Good job as always! thumb



Side Note: Keep an eye out on the W. Prong and let me know when the sunnies are getting active! cheers

gar...nice report...I guess that confirms that the sunnies are still deep, but it shouldn't be too long now until they start moving up shallow...

Great post and some nice fish. What color of jigs/baits do you like to use while fishing night?

My favorite time to catch quality bluegills and sunfish is at night. I use tube jigs on 132nd or 16th oz jig heads. Best colors for me are chartreuse/black and red/chartreuse. No bobber necessary, just a cast and a slow but steady retrieve nails em!

Thanks for the reply Laker! I like chartreuse with any other color and a solid white are my go-to colors at night but I'm going to add more dark colors to my night fishing arsenal thumb

Sweeeeeeettt! My friend Ms D absolutely loves pink and purple patterns for sunfish. She has a lot of confidence in those colors on some of the places she/we fish and with good reason.


Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless His Holy Name!
