Are they starting to bed in your area?

Have not found them yet! Went with a buddy Sunday afternoon and caught 10 BIG'UNS and got excited, went back yesterday afternoon and caught one! Hopefully they will hit soon. I am ready to fill the freezer.

We found them Saturday and Sunday. Studs too. Could have filled the boat in one spot. As long as I dropped it in the X, we caught a fish every cast.
This pic isn't forced perspective either, the fish is right beside his head. And it is as big as his head.

I forgot how much work cleaning bream is. We quit at 25 for Sunday.

Try filleting the bream, especially if they are that size, and cook the fillets in shrimp boil. Make a lot because you can eat a ton of em without filling up and they be fine. Just don't overcook, let em boil a couple minutes then turn heat off and let them soak a little longer.

Beds are on fire in this hills lake.
45 caught, 38 kept all so big I could barely get my hand around them. All from one 10 yard circle. All I had time to do was take fish off, rebait the hook, then swap out rods, and repeat the process.

We decided to thin out the neighborhood pond Saturday. Yes, that is a 100 quart cooler. And we probably threw back that many more.

Caught 33 on Saturday am and 21 that pm, according to our caretaker, the weekend before was the "hot" time. Planning to go back this weekend.

Bought a 3wt fly rod just for panfish. What a great way to spend an afternoon.
