Jumbo Bluegills and slabs! 10-22

I got up North to chase some big slabs and bluegills with Chad "crappiesniffer" and his friend Joel.
We had a blast nailing big sunfish in 23 ft. I had my best luck jigging nightcrawlers
a foot or 2 off the bottom. The crappies came on a tugsten jig with a little atom jumbo wedgee, I also boated some slabs on a Northland mimmic minnow.

I am getting behind on my blogging since I have got out on the water so often. I still have pike and bass with Dave maas, and backwater action with jack I haven't posted yet

Iceless Ice fishing!

While many ice anglers are chomping at the bit for cold weather to freeze things up, My short rods and ice reels are getting a workout, by gold stren ice line is getting stretched, and my flasher is lit up like a Christmas tree!
I am just sitting over 10 to 20 ft vertical jigging and getting many nice bluegills and crappies. It is a bit harder to stay vertical and read the line in my float tube in the wind, than it is on ice, but on the other hand, no hole drilling needed, so it all equaled out. Heavy metal tungsten jigs helped it from drifting out too far, and tipping with live bait caused them to hold onto the jig longer, so I had time to see the bites in the wind.
