I'd be just as interested in the bluegills, assuming they are not the finger long types. I used to catch a couple 9" ers every time we hit the crappies in early May, and perch, too.

Could they be caught from shore? My kayak won't go on top of my new little suv without a rack.

It is possible...and sometimes productive...to fish off the rocks down below the caretakers' facilities...just east of the buoy line. See map and pics.

I have fished that area a lot from float tubes and often fished by casting back in toward shore and working my jigs down the slope in shallower water. The bluegills are often quite a bit shallower than the crappies.

You can access a couple of spots that are not too steep but if you do fish from shore be very careful. It is steep and the rocks are sometimes loose.

There are not many places around the lake where you can fish from shore and reach water deep enough to hold fish at this time of year. In years past I did well on the fish by rigging a slip bobber to present my small worm-sweetened tube jigs at about 20 feet...adjusting as needed. But if you can handle getting snagged in the rocks more often you can just make long casts semi parallel to the shoreline...into the depth you discover the most fish.

Easily if you have access to some night crawlers and you can cast from 5 to 15 feet.

Well then. Maybe it's a date for tomorrow.

Saturday I couldn't find a hungry fish of any type from shore at the Narrows.

Tried all of the above Friday evening (not Saturday, sorry) at three spots in the narrows with no luck. Did slip bobber rig for crappie with tube jigs and some of my more procuctive ice-fishing stuff (wobbly jigs) at 20-about 35 feet deep, and "drop-shotted" half a night crawler at a bunch of depths for bluegills or smallies.

But, that was evening on the shaded (south) side, and I only had two hours or so to fish.

There are a couple of spots on the south side that can produce well. But the north (sunny) side is usually better. Sorry you didn't score well. But that's fishing.

I don't mind not catching fish. I just hate doing it wrong, so it's MY fault. I like to be able to blame it on the fish.

Mobility was limited due to a short time window, and a flat tire on the 'Zuki. Sunny side was where I was headed when I suddenly had to settle for less.

Thanks, TD.
