  • Is it a good idea to use bluegill as a fish activity indicator for bass? A storm front was coming in yesterday and so I thought

    Is it a good idea to use bluegill as a fish activity indicator for bass? A storm front was coming in yesterday and so I thought it would be a great time to hit the fishing hole. The bluegill were very active and aggressive but i couldnt get the bass to bite anything. I had one big bass nip at a frog bait but then it took off. I was throwing poppers, frogs, spoons, and props and still couldnt get anything. Maybe my presentation is off?

    Usually during barometric change ther is a very small window of opportunity.About 30 minutes (ave) anytime of day works but dusk and dawn are better for the larger predator fish like bass.

      Slow down and go to a black worm Texas rigged.

        I think slowing down may have been my best bet. I was getting some reaction strikes when i sped up and jerked the bait but maybe i kept speeding up when i should have slowed it down and finessed a little more. Thanks guys.

          Good advice about but remember bass are usually finicky to begin with.

            Or maybe try a crankbait that looks like a bluegill.
