Martinsen went on to say that the 2012 catalog has already gone to print, and that Joie's photo will appear in their 2013 catalog. Sign up to get your free copy of the catalog at http://www.mepps.com/, and check out all their nice fishing lures while you're there.
So does everyone agree with Martinsen about the catch, the girl, and the background? Yeah--I thought so....

Bluegills and shellcracker are being caught out of holes right next to each other, and they are both biting crickets and worms. Artificial lures like Mepps Aglia Spinners are not particularly effective right now, but a few bigger fish are being caught on such lures. Fish are hitting at depths of 3-6 feet, and when you find some bluegills but aren't catching any shellcracker, go about 18 inches deeper and you should pick some up.
Fish around the inside bends where the current is slacker, and you should find fish around any structure like fallen trees. Pay special attention to the big root balls of toppled trees that are lying in the river.
