Fishing bluegills and bullhead catfish


April's here and in my fishing area that means closed season for most species of game fish. Kids of school for passover, took my 3 younger boys out for some shore fishing. As I've already caught tons of worms, we had plenty to go around. Set up the kids with small hook and sinker combos, tied on a micro jig for myself.

The bite was on almost immediately, with my youngest landing a couple bluegills. My others soon joined the action, caught more bluegill and pumpkinseed sunfish, as well as some bullhead catfish, perch and a few small sized largemouth bass.

Except for the bullheads, most of the other fish were still kind of lethargic, water is barely above freezing.

Hope to head out for another outing next week.
