Survival Fishing – Large Panfish on a River

Here I share some tips I’ve learned fishing some heavily pressured bream on a North Central Florida River.

    small crank baits would have work or jerk baits that would have brought the bigger fish of the school

    I use bread a lot, it works. I also use bacon. Just raw bacon cut into small strips, it stays on good and pan fish love it.

    Tiny piece of gas station hotdog works. Not uncooked, they're too soft, Being on the grill for a long time toughens it up.

    Interesting that you bring up the topic of the fish becoming used to humans, Bullfrog.   

    Perhaps fish are much smarter than most people give them credit for being.  

    I am reminded of not only how smart crows are, but their ability to adapt to an urban environment.

    This is an excellent example.

    Artificial bait can work fine for bluegill but they're samplers, they fight each other to get closest to a new object in the water and then they nibble but rarely just bite. If it doesn't taste like food they let it go. If you jig a small artificial (small meaning anything small enough to fit in their mouth) you can still catch tons of bluegill, just don't give them time to nibble on it and swim away disappointed.

    also the nightcrawler worms, that usually works best, but if you run out of nightcrawlers, raid the pantry!

    I've used bread balls and sweet corn to catch bream, catfish, and carp since I was a kid, it was always the standby if nothing else was working.

    I wish i lived in Florida… The enviroment is so exotic.. Sweden is pretty boring, we have no rivers like this and no fish like this either. I really enjoy your videos and channel, just found it but as i said, i enjoy it alot! Thank you :)

    Florida Bulldog try using different variety of lure curly tail grubs , paddle tail and crankbaits , also in the summer and spring try not to fish mid day because this is the time when fish are most lethargic , try fishing morning and late afternoon. Bream also have selective memory like other panfish so they remember your lure or bait.

    Is that fresh or brackish water? would that be potable water after boiling? Unlike other bio-regions, we don't have clear, fresh water streams as bountiful. I find it hard to find a place to hike that has a creek near by for bushcrafting and water procurement that isn't pig-tainted.
