Wipers were biting this weekend on the Miss! 8-12 on the left and 6-4 on the right, you can tell which one of us is better at taking fish picsūü§£IMG_20190623_105905417_HDR.jpg.e80be17e95b8f102445e913970cb99ff.jpg

Very Nice!

Awesome! Never caught a wiper but my buddies from Colorado say they fight really hard

@Dorado Yes, they do fight really hard. It's unlike anything imo. There's zero doubt when you have a wiper on the other end. I have only caught 7 in the two years I've been fishing and I remember every single one of them (largest being just 19"). I will say they are probably funner on spinning tackle as the drag really sings but they're a blast regardless.

 

I caught one on a whopper plopper 110 last September, by far my favorite one. Luckily I had my gopro on that morning. I had been catching smallies when this guy (just 2.5 lbs) crushed it like freight train.

Here's the gopro footage of the wiper on the plopper: https://youtu.be/URAbiRcwJcg

 

 

Found a keeper walleye (they gotta be 18" around here) yesterday morning bass fishing, on a flashy swimmer/keitech. Was a little surprised to find a walleye up shallow like that with slick calm water and not a cloud in the sky.

Can someone identify this fish? I caught her a few weeks ago in a place I hadn't fished. I've never caught a bluegill, I thought this was a bluegill at first but when I google pics of bluegills now I can't be sure. At the fishery I frequent most often it's shad, shad and more shad ha, so I have to admit I haven't yet paid much attention to bluegills or the sort.

@TotalNoob Looks like a Green Sunfish to me. I catch them fairly often on the main lake I fish at. They have cool coloring and will seemingly bite just about anything at anytime that passes the piece of cover they are tucked under.

Yes they fight incredibly hard, especially in 245,000 CFS like it was on Sunday! They are very powerful and the big ones really know how to use the current to their advantage.

Big green sunfish, aka flathead catfish bait :). I've sacrificed hundreds of them in the name of catching big catfish. They're super aggressive and very hardy.

Big bluegills got me for a whole bag of Generals, but I got a couple of them too.

One of my favorite sunfish species to catch. Choked down a whole 5" General and got a 3/0 EWG hook in it's mouth all the way to it's eyeball.

I've never seen one of those.  Is that a warmouth?

Yes it is. Looks pretty similar to a green sunfish in the body, but the colors are different and they aren't nearly as numerous. Their color patterns are always really cool though.

The humidity we’ve had for several days now finally broke today, so I took the kid out for some downrigging. We were only out for about 2 hours but managed 8 fat rainbows, 2 nice lakers and lost another half dozen or so. Kept a few of the rainbows and had a nice fish fry with visiting family this evening.

My son just caught two of these off our dock last weekend. I thought they were just small dark crappie, now I know they’re warmouth. I’m not too familiar with these guys.
