Bream Fishing Time

It's time to hit the lakes, rivers, and ponds for getting into some slabs of bream. Bluegills and shellcrackers are biting like crazy, and MidlandsOutdoors has been catching them on crickets and lures such as Mepp's Aglia spinners (http://www.mepps.com/) and Panther Martin spinners (http://www.panthermartin.com/). 1/16 and 1/8-ounce sizes are working best, and are prone to catching a largemouth bass as well.

Bream are great table fare and are easy to catch, so it's a great way to introduce kids to the sport of fishing. And for fun, you can't beat hooking a bream on ultralight spinning gear.

The weather is great and the bream are biting all around the midlands, so get outdoors and catch some fish.
