Monofilament, fluorocarbon and braided line — options are numerous, and while certain fundamentals definitely guide the decisions; there’s plenty of room for creativity and situation-specific uses. Maybe you’re trying to make a lure do something or not do something; perhaps, the habitat you’re fishing presents a concentrated set of considerations. In any case, understand that line choice can greatly impact your productivity.
Bream fishing carries different connotations for different people, but the desired result is almost always the same: Fighting a feisty broad-sided little fish to the boat or bank to be enjoyed as a tasty fried treat.
After pushing their plastic boats from the tops of their vehicles and into Barnett Reservoir, Dwayne Walley and Brad Case slipped along the edges of the backwater lily pads barely, making a ripple as the day came to life around them.
Stopping to eye a stump that protruded several inches above a thick heart shaped clump of vegetation, a sure sight that clearly read “a big largemouth bass lives here,” Walley pitched a Mississippi born and made Scum Frog just past the patch and eased the bait up on top of the vegetation.
This month's full moon signals that bream will be crowded on shallow beds, just waiting for a worm or cricket to crush.
