How to Fish for Bluegill with Worms – Easy Float Fishing for 1 Hour

How to Fish for Bluegill with Worms Easy Float Fishing for 1 Hour - Realistic Fishing

In this week’s first episode are tips for those that want to know how to fish for bluegill with worms. You can use this easy float fishing method for 1 hour and you can achieve results like this. Even though it is fairly cold outside, the fish still need to eat. Live bait like nightcrawlers are a great way to catch many fish that might be more difficult to catch on lures. There aren’t  many fish out there that can resist a piece of worm. With $25 worth of fishing tackle you can be out there catching fish just like me. Learn your pond, lake, or river in the winter time and you too can get out there and catch a few. When the bass and other types of fish aren’t as easy to catch, even the best fishermen like to get out and fish for bluegill. Its easy and you can catch a bunch in only 1 hour.

Realistic Fishing From the Bank in Winter (Fishing with Nightcrawlers)

Realistic Fishing From the Bank in Winter - Realistic Fishing

In this week’s first episode I’m doing some realistic fishing from the bank in winter with nightcrawlers. Bank fishing can be really tough during the winter but there are still fish out there waiting to be caught. I fish with both a float rig and a realistic rig and I actually catch a few on the nightcrawlers. The boat traffic eventually gets to be a little much so I move on to a new spot. I try fishing at Skeletor Park for a while but have no luck. The sunset was the best part of fishing at the second spot. If you have a chance to fish from the bank this winter, fishing with nightcrawlers just might get you a few fish.

Trout fishing in a New Creek! Finding New Fishing Spots for Trout

Trout Fishing in a new Creek Finding New Fishing Spots for Trout - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week I’m out trying some trout fishing in a new creek. Finding new fishing spots to catch trout is pretty exciting and exploring the new locations can be just as much fun. After I tried to catch some by the dam for a while without a single bites, I move my way down a trail looking for some new spots. I ended up finding a few good places to catch trout as I walk along the new creek. I even ended up catching a shiner on a power egg which really was unexpected. I ended up at a small bridge where I caught the last two trout of the day. Trout fishing in a new creek really can be fun. Half of the fun is finding some the new spots to try!

Cold Water Fishing with Nightcrawlers & Trout Fishing Below a Spillway – Which Bait Catches More Dam Trout?

Trout Fishing Below a Spillway Which Bait Catches More Dam Trout - Realistic Fishing

Fishing with Nightcrawlers to Catch Fish in Cold Water (Live Bait)

Fishing with Nightcrawlers to Catch Fish in Cold Water - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week I tried fishing with some Nightcrawlers to try to catch some fish in cold water. Live bait is definitely what I needed to catch something, anything today. After I spent some time fishing for trout in rather poor conditions and then fishing below the dam and coming up with nothing, I picked up some nightcrawlers because I was feeling pretty desperate! After spending a few hours fishing and not catching a single thing, I really needed to try something else. So, I got those Nightcrawlers and took the worms back to “the log” to try and catch anything at all. Though I love to go fishing year round, cold water fishing can really be tricky. However, I found that fishing with nightcrawlers can catch fish when nothing else seems to do the trick.

Fishing in Cold Water to Avoid Going Crazy – Realistic Winter Fishing

Fishing in Cold Water to Avoid Going Crazy Realistic Winter Fishing - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week I’m doing some realistic winter fishing in cold water to avoid losing my mind. I really wanted to get some live minnows, but of course the bait store didn’t have any so I’m stuck fishing with some artificial Gulp minnows. I try using the Gulp minnow on a realistic rig and on a float rig. After only getting one fish I think by fishing the bottom, I switched to the bobber and end up doing a bit better.  Soon after I caught the biggest bluegill of the day that was around 8 inches, I ended up snagged on the tree and lost my panfish rig. So if you’re like me and you need to go fishing to avoid going stir crazy – yes, friend, you can still catch a few fish in cold water.

Winter Bank Fishing with Hellgrammite & Panfish Magnets (Bass Caught)

Winter Bank Fishing with Hellgrammite and Panfish Magnets Bass Caught - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week I’m doing some winter bank fishing with Hellgrammites & Panfish Magnets and I actually caught a bass! Did I catch it on a Hellgrammite or using the Panfish magnet? Not only did I catch the bass, but I also caught bluegill and crappie. Both of the lures I used worked well for the conditions I was facing. The cold wind and snow this time of year made the fishing a little bit tricky. I can honestly say that either one of these lures can catch fish. But it turned out that today, the panfish magnet caught more of a variety of fish.  So if you have access to hellgrammites or panfish magnets, why not give them a try in open water or in  frozen water. You just might catch a nice bass as well.

Fall Bank Fishing with a Jerkbait and Realistic Rig Big Shellcracker - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week its time for some more fall bank fishing using a jerkbait and realistic rig.  I end up catching bluegill, a couple small bass and a nice big shellcracker. The weather  is starting to cool off and the wind is starting to pick up, but fortunately the fishing is still pretty good. I end up catching a Quarter Pounder with cheese on the jerkbait before I then switch to the Realistic Gulp Rig which is how I catch the big red ear sunfish, bass and the bluegill. If you can handle the cold, fall fishing from the bank can be really productive. Whether you try a realistic rig or a jerkbait, chances are good you can get a few good fish, even maybe a big shellcracker.

In the first episode this week we’re fishing with live bait (minnows) for bluegill, bass & crappie. I’m finally able to fish again and to start things off this week I think I’ll go with something easy. Fishing with live bait can produce great results catching multiple fish. At the very first spot I try, I catch two small largemouth bass. After I move to another spot I end up catching some good sized bluegill and a nice sized crappie. I then share a handful of tips on how to fish with minnows on two different rigs. Fishing​ for bass, crappie​  and bluegill​ with live minnows is a great way to spend a couple hours.

Fishing for Bass and Bait – Catching Big Shad & Small Bass from Shore!

Fishing for Bass and Bait Catching Big Shad and Small Bass from Shore - Realistic Fishing

In the first episode this week I’m fishing for bait and some bass but turns out I end up catching small bass and big shad. At certain times of the year from the shore you can catch both bait AND bass. I found that the large shad were hanging out in the back of this creek but there were no large bass to be found. I caught a yellow bass on a live shad and found fairly small 5 inch bass using a jerkbait.  I will say the large gizzard shad stole the show today but when the shad are this big, it does take a pretty big bass to get a bite. Unfortunately for me today there were no big fish feeding on them. Hopefully next time I’ll end up with some small bait and some big bass.
