Case Hellgrammites for Panfish

Posted on September 16th, 2021

I love to catch frying size Panfish and I especially like taking our grandkids out to enjoy catching them.

Recently we took the grandkids out and rigged their hooks with a small piece of nightcrawler and they were catching one panfish after another.

Bluegill that reach 8-9″ are ideal for keeping and filleting.

Myself and our daughter Jessica started using the Fishing Compete Case Hellgrammite cut in half & rigged on a 1/8 oz. jighead.

Pumpkinseed the size of an average mans hand is ideal for filleting and frying up.

Our results were as good as the kids using a real piece of nightcrawler.

A small 1/2′ piece of nightcrawler rigged on a 1/8 oz. jighead is all you need to catch panfish.

We just lowered our jigs down and gently shook them and slowly lifted them off the bottom. We would get one strike after another.

Panfish are ideal fish for kids to get hooked on fishing.

We were fishing an open-water weedbed and dropped our lines just off the edge of the weeds in 8-9′ of water.

Make sure to check the fishing videos on our Italo Labignan YouTube channel and if you have any questions just email them to me at Ask Italo throughout our website.
