Wonder what the odds of a bream biting a worm today would be?
I have never even thought about trying to catch them this time of the year, much less tried it.

I might today though.

Thought about trying to catch some more trout but the action has been VERY slow every time I have gone.
Just thought about maybe throwing a worm with a float close to the bottom and see if a bream would bite.

Those trout like worms too! Mix up your baits. You will find something the trout are hitting. Round floating baits like berkley power eggs will work well.

Been fishing with corn on bottom, berkley power bait (corn flavored) on bottom and then both with floats.
Also been throwing a rooster tail as I waited.
Caught one on corn, with float and one with the rooster tail.
Got one small bite last time with the power bait on bottom but when I picked up the pole it was gone.

I might suggest you switch to fluorocarbon line and a long shank laser sharp light wire hook size 8. You will be amazed at how many more fish you catch.

Ruger, I have never fished for anything this time of year except for trout and walleye. Let us know how you do.

I'm fixing to try and fill a stringer of bream after deer season. I will use nightcrawler and/or small plastic grubs or trout magnets under a bobber

Hey Ruger my neighbor went bream fishing 2 weeks ago and kept 23 bream and a 7lb. catfish. He was fishing in 21 ft. of water with no cork. He'd let the cricket hit the bottom and reel it up just a little and they would hit it pretty good.

Also, I wonder how / if they would bite in a pond of like 6 acres where no boat access is allowed.

Ruger, you've still got that fly rod don't you? Put on a nymph like a bead head hares ear or small wooly bugger and put it under a small bobber (strike indicator). Start in about five feet of water and keep going deeper till you find them. Just twitch the line every cew seconds and watch the indicator. Much deeper than 10 ft and the leader won't be long enough for this method.

I would say "yes" they would bite in a pond as long as you fished in the deep just off the bottom.

Ruger, I don't see any reason why you couldn't catch anything. I suppose if the weather warms up--like it's supposed to this week--they might be inclined to bite. It's worth a try.

Otherwise, you could just stay at work and work some overtime. \:D
Now the fishing idea sounds better, don't it?

If you're after crappie use a minnow or small jig. Bream will take the minnow also but a cricket... If you can find it or red worm would be better.

A slow retrieve with a beetle spin will get either one. The key is fishing tree tops or other brush piles.

Close as you live to it, have you tried floating the North Fork yet? Some nice warm days in the coming week would be a good opportunity to float the stretch from around Latham to Duncans. Forget the fly rod and just stick with about a 5-ft ultra-light spinning outfit, 4-lb line and 1/8-oz white and/or brown rooster tails. Keep it simple. You might be surprised at what you catch. Might even catch some big bream and a few small bass while you're trout fishing! \:D

If you're strictly after bream, I'd just go to Reelfoot.
