Carlisle Floats  

This fishing adventure started while we were swimming at a campground in southwest Michigan. My brother, my friend and I were swimming and I noticed some good size bluegills on beds right by us! Right away all three of us ran back to our campsite to get our fishing poles. I tied on a Carlisle Spring-lok float, with a little size six bluegill hook and snap sinker. Also could not forget the night crawlers we had found the night before!

How it happened
When we got back to the where we were swimming we waded out to about waist deep and started casting. Within minutes the bluegills were having a frenzy over the night crawlers! One after another, the bluegills kept on biting!

To catch these bluegills we threw our lines over the beds. The Carlisle float helped us to see where our worm and sinkers were and showed the strike of the protective bluegills. A great combo! Using a float with a night-crawler is a very effective way to catch bluegills. Cast past their beds and reel it back through. Make sure to stop it when it’s right above them. When the float is right over the bed, let it sit. If there is no action right away, give your line some twitches, giving the worm some movement. As soon as that float starts moving sideways, or bobs up and down… reel into the hook set and fish on! This system is a very fun and simple way to get out and catch fish.

Have fun and be safe,

Sam Gernaat
