Default Some bluegill reports.

I fished Old Hickory yesterday with my son. Water temps were 82 degrees. Found a ton of beds but there were only a few fish on each bed...and they were so spawned out they could hardly put up a decent fight. An odd year so far for me on bluegill. I hit Nickajack this past Saturday hoping to get back onto some more shell cracker action but the beds had no fish left on them really. I did catch my PB red breast sunfish and had a good shell cracker and a nice tussle with a 16 inch largemouth on 1# test line....a lot of fun. I will continue the hunt but am dead in the water as a weld broke on my boat trailer...getting it fixed Thursday. Am going even lighter in my tackle......have ordered an XUL trout rod. Should make for a lot of fun on bluegill in the 5-7 inch range. Here is link to Nickajack video from Saturday.....hope you all enjoy.

Good video and some pretty country there at Nickajack. Maybe in one of your next videos could you turn on the camera and show us your twitch presentation with the Magnet?
Always enjoy your posts. You're doing a great job of living the dream!
