8.5" Bluegill caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Sunday May 20, 2012 at 07:30 near Walled Lake in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a Drop shot #8 hook & redworm a Worm

Water temperature in Walled Lake about 68-70 degrees between 7:30 & 10:30 am. I was able to catch 4 largemouth bass (from 12 -14 inches, largest shown in previous post) and a dozen more sunfish. It was a mixed bag of male and female pumpkinseeds and bluegill (shown here) all 8 to 8 1/2 inches. All were caught on a drop shot using #8 hook & redworm or 3 inch powerbait trout worm. Still need to make extremely long casts to reach the edge of weedbeds. The fish are still grouped very close together. I am starting to get concerned that due to the low water level I will not be able to reach the deep weed edge to get my second Master Angler award for pumpkinseed or bluegill this year – even though I am near them each time out. With any luck, on the next trip I will hit some larger females.
