BLUE GILL QUESTION

Recommended Posts

Guest muddy

Hey Fellas; Most of my time on the water is for LMB,SMB and when I am in an area forit Northern's( Way too infrequently) , I was watching some kids fish, and I think I am going spend some time fishin for gillies again this year. Whata ya want i just turned 57, probablly has something to do with it. I got the rod and reel to use and when i was a kid, there was a catalog:Netcraft ( not Janns) that had Clear Floats and white,black and green foam spiders, Where can I find these things nowdays

The kits came with a hard clear palstic little float, the were solid,through and through . you didnt put water in them. The kit came with 4 floats and two each of these particular spiders.

Yea I am going to visit Brooklyn next week and I am going to stop in RAMSEY SPORTING GOODS, they have pretty much the whole Betts Line. Its been a long time since I targeted Gillies. I belive they used to come on a crad( The Spiders) the were named something like Stopper Baits?, The flosts were , one inch, clear Hard palstic with a screw eye in each side. '

Thanks For the Help

 It's not quite on the subject, but your post got me to thinking about things I used when I was really young fishing with my parents. At every bait shop you could buy these porcupine quills that had been made into a float. They were great! Haven't seen one in years :(...

Check your shorts when you change them next month.  :o

Oh,,,,,,and here's my #1 BG Killa

the 1" or 1.5" on a true UL outfit are much fun, and the gillies cannot resist.

I use the brown and brook trout finishes (yes, I know there are no trout in Florida, but the gills don't know that)

Let it sink a foot then twitch it back to you....It won't get far...

a bonus is that the little bassies and crappie will pounce on em as well.
