I love May and June for pan fishing. So I fished Center Hill Monday looking for Shell Crackers and big Blue Gill. I caught and released multiple (What dad called) SNUB NOSED BLUE GILL. At least 20 or more bigger than you hand-BUT only 1 Shell Cracker. I looked for them until it was getting hot around noon (near 90) and decided to head back in. As I was running toward the bridge at Siligo I saw a nice size bust  out in the middle of the Chanel. I had a 1 inch Shad color Jigging Rap tied on a light action rod with Sufix 6lb Pro Mix Mono www.sufix.com  so I stopped dropped the Ultrex and there they were 20 feet down in bait. I set the spot lock dropped the Jigging Rap made 2 or 3 snaps and wham one of the Large mouth you see above-2 more drops 2 more hook ups 1 more large mouth and I lost 1 of the biggest Spots that I have had on on Center Hill. Then it was over! It was a matter of the right place at the right time using the right lure. I started fishing a Rapala Jigging Rap www.rapala.com back in the 60’s and 70’s Ice Fishing in northern Indiana and Michigan and caught a ton of fish. BUT I soon learned that the Jigging series lures from Rapala works in open water applications just as well.  Rapala offers a Jigging Rap-Jigging Shad Rap–Jigging Snap Rap–Jigging Flat Rap and a “New Jigging Shadow Rap” Each with their own techniques—-multiple sizes weights and colors. There are also all kinds of videos on the Jigging series on our site at Rapala.com and on line as well.  If your a Walleye fisherman you need to check out some of Al Linders videos on Jigging Rap Walleye. No matter what lake your fishing having a Rapala Jigging Rap on when you leave the dock for deeper suspended fish is a very good idea. Check them out at Rapala.com “NOTE” with gas prices the way they are I will only be making 1 trip a week-but I will post what ever the results.
