O.K. all,

Went bass fishing this morning and most of the bass were smarter than I <grinz>. Smelled bream beds then off to get bait we went. You can read about the trip on my website if you like in the "What's New" section. http://www.bassinfool.com .

Tight Lines All!!!

I get laughed at when I tell people I can smell them. Glad to hear someone else can too!

Yup. If you enter a cove and there is a rampant smell of decay, it's usually bluegill beds. The explanation that I heard is that the bluegills spawn in areas so shallow, that the smell of the beds being formed will hover above the water. Thus, it gives away that bluegills are bedding. :thumbup01:

In ohio when you smell the decaying smell it is something dead. LMAO dead carp, dead shad are usually the culprit, :rofl1:

I dont know if i would describe the smell as decay but you can definitely smell the beds when they are bedding. It's a definite fishy smell. I actually like that smell. An old man I once fished with down here taught me that.
