I have NEVER seen fatheads out fish Emeralds at the Greece ponds ............... I have seen guys dump their fatheads and go buy Emeralds after watching for half an hour  ;)    ask my buddy Elmer :-)

Like I said, YMMV.

And next time I see Elmer, I'll try to remember to ask him.

I love to fish it in rough conditions! Keep your emerald slowly moving on bottom and you will kill them !  ;)

Sweet.

My family's farm is on Lighthouse.

Been fishing the ponds and Braddocks for over 50.
Close to 60.

So what!

I told you that I typically always prefer emeralds.
But I have seen fatheads outperform emeralds on the ponds and BB more than the reverse.
Just what I've seen.
Numerous times.
And I cannot explain it.

You however, have seen different.

Tell you what........bring both.   :D

And oaks, mousies, and waxworms.
And redworms.
And perchbugs………….

 ;D

Actually dragonfly nymph Bob.
We used to buy them at Mac's boat Livery on Silver Lake back in the 60's.
Fish love them.





I have not seen them for sale since back then.

my buddy Joe and I have fished the ponds and Salmon creek and Braddocks for 50 years and have always done well with the fatheads, which are damm hardy. I have had  a minnow bucket with fatheads for almost 2 months   with no  circulator but only rain water additions. Too bad my minnow receite  is expired. Emeralds usually die within hours from when I buy them stored the same way.

They were my go to perch bait when I was younger. Bob's Bait in Lakeville always had them. Would love to find a supply of them again.
