We went out on Bear Lake in search of blue gills and crappies. Setting
up our poles, Brian Besette says sometimes the fish need a little bit of
persuading. "See how that dances like that with the plastic on the end?
That attracts the fish in and the wax worm actually makes them bite.
Basically talk the fish into biting."
Instead of sitting for the rest of the day with our fingers crossed, we bring out the secret weapon. Bessette says, "10, 15, 20 years ago you'd never know when they were there. Now, with the vexilar and the flasher you know exactly where the fish are, you see your bait go down and you're able to work the fish. It's like a video game like we talked about. It makes for a different aspect to the sport and makes it a lot more fun."
After a nice streak of a bunch of bites in a row, the fishing went from hot to not.
Stacking our success from the ice we look forward to a hot meal of blue gills and crappies.
