fished with Butch and his brother John.
fished in water about 9 - 11 feet deep and 7 yards east of the light.
best bait was nightcrawlers.
Best rig was a rodney rig useing a pretied double surgeons dropper loop. The setup used two sickle #4 hooks with the top black and bottom red. It was tied on 12 # Berkley Vanish. The 8 lb sinker tag was about 6 inches long. The lower hook was about 4 inches above the elastic. The upper hook was about 8 inches to a foot above the lower hook.
Keep the hooks within 20 inches of the bottom if possible and about 8 inches apart.
tried fluorescent c

Bluegills and a variety of other fish like the water about 10 feet deep near the lights. They occasionaly stop feeding entireley. A big fish has swam in and that would be the time to have a bluegill set up on another pole.

This is a good area to fish.

Objective 1, Use Cubby Mini Might in chartreuse under a float approximately 3 feet below the surface and also about 1 foot above the bottom
Objective 2 Use the wiggle rig with a sickle hook in size 4 since this particular size worked so well at Nekoosa a year ago.
Objective 3 Use the wiggle rig with an aberdeen type hook in about a size 6.

Learned from Butch. Butch caught his bluegill using a size 8 or possibly size 6 gold jig hook with a brass snap a piece of nightcrawler or a piece of worm. If the bluegills were a little shy he would not use the snap and swivel. The snap and swivel may scare away some of the smaller bluegills. Perhaps the larger baits do the same thing.
