Forget the fishing, I'll just be glad to get out of the house without suffocating.

Went yesterday and was surprised how few people at Oak Thicket...10-12boats out. We picked up some Night Crawlers and headed to the dam. Our first time to try for the Gills and Rios. Used the Vogey Drop Shot and quickly started to get a bite every cast! Not very well versed on all the species we caught of Bluegills. But we had a blast...for about 2 hours and then they just quit...moved over to the old pond on the east side of the lake and just couldn't seem to find them like we did at the dam. I am interested in the Gulp Alive Minnows....I am guessing not as messy as Night Crawlers on my white boat deck. Size of minnow? Color? Where to order? Thanks for turning us on to great fishing technique!!

I have fished Fayette only twice this year. Vogey is the Bluegill Section Expert on that lake and fishes Fayette weekly. I have picked up a lot of great techniques from his post. The last time I fished Fayette was about three weeks ago and I had great results fishing the reed beds and stick ups. The dam for what I have been told also holds good numbers of nice fish including Rios. As for the Gulp Minnows I use the one inch natural color Silver/Black, or Chartreuse. Gotten great results on both colors. Easily available at a lot of sporting good stores. Acadamey,Dicks,Bass Pro,and Walmart usually carry them. You can also order them on line through either the stores or Amazon! woot

Wug...You are right, the Gulp Alive minnows are not near as messy as night crawlers, and don't catch as many small fish. I use the 1 inch minnows and have used three colors. Emerald shiner, Chartreuse shad & watermelon pearl. They all work well, but if I had to pick one, I would go with the Chartreuse shad. I normally get mine from Amazon or Dicks. Here are the prices I have seen posted.

Amazon - 5.95 per jar
Wal Mart - 5.95 per jar
Bass Pro - 5.99 per jar
Dicks - 3.99 per jar
Berkley - 5.99 per jar

Not sure how many there are in a jar...I saw one post that said 3 dozen & another that said 50. Hope this helps...
