Okaboji Bluegills

11 posts in this topic

Caught some nice bluegills monday morning out on west okaboji along a weedline in 16 ft. Small pink jig with a whole nightcrawler was the ticket. Caught a few smallmouth bass in the mix too. Fun morning. Anyone else having any luck?

Bluegills (8-9.5") are still biting along weedlines in 15-20ft. garden worms or belgium worms have worked best. Picking up some nice bonus walleyes and smallmouth.

We were up on West Tuesday morning and brought home about 20 nice gills. Unlike most years at this time, we had to do some searching to find the nicer sized ones, but being willing to search through a variety of locations and depths made a big difference. Planning to do more of the same over the next couple of weeks.

    • ouch, I would think all would good now, but one never knows.  life is good today is all i know.
    • 33 pounds. nice looking unit but kinda heavy. nice price out there.

    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
    • I was talking about the heat from the heat exchanger making the fan hot.  With the fan at the top it blows the hot air out the bottom of the heater to help heat the floor.
