Chunk of a bluegill I caught today there starting to spawn super early this year. Throwing the aptly named (by @wyldechylde77) McCrawly (see my last blert for a pic) pretty much throwing it in either where I saw fish or around cover and just letting it sit until something picked it up. You really had to let fish eat it and wait for the rod to bend before you set the hook. Air temp was 80 and sunny

      And water was warm and clear. Fish were hanging on the gravel bottoms just out side cover so heavy tippet was important.
