Things here in New England are finally starting towards the summer patterns and many species are getting through with their spawning duties. The crappies have done their thing and are gone from the shallows now, the sunfish have moved in and certain areas are thick with action. Waters are definitely warming and with that the fishing is only going to get better and the summer patterns will start playing into your fishing day soon.

Monday – went back to a bigger lake and before getting to the area that has been holding numbers of nice sunfish, had a nice discussion with a couple of young anglers and answered their questions that they had. Walked back to this area and the wind was blowing into it some and the fish have vacated that particular area. After walking the shoreline for quite a way’s to find more productive water, I ended in a small cove that was loaded with wood. As soon as I got there you could see the sunfish swimming around in this quiet area and the action was none stop. Lost a number of jigs here as the shoreline has a lot of tall dead weeds and grass and if you don’t get the fish on the surface of the water right away they may run into it. The bait for this area was a 1/32 oz jighead with a Loby Baits Mousi in the white color and the Polli in the pink color.

Tuesday – went to two different ponds and both of them the sunfish action was unbelievable. The first pond, is the one that I had been showing pictures and video’s of the crappies along the shore and the sunfish have finally moved in and taken over and are in full color. Nice sized bull sunfish and they are giving a great fight on Ultra Light gear. Fishing a 1/32 oz jig with the Loby Baits Buggi in the white color and when they stopped biting that color switched to the deep purple color and they would start biting again. The second pond once the active area was found, they were on fire here as well. Numbers of sunfish were caught but only a handful of them were the nicer sized fish. Lots of smaller fish here but as long as the cork is going down, it really doesn’t matter. The fish at this pond were caught with a 1/32 oz jig with a Loby Baits Mousi in the white color and only needed to use one piece of plastic to catch around 50 fish. Plastics are Fantastic.... cool smiley
