Default Another Monster Bluegill

IMG_0247 by Bill Moore, on Flickr

Caught this foot long beast on my little 2wt rod. What a battle that was. Hooked into about 30 big ones. A few of them managed to get into the grass because the little rod just couldn't hold 'em, but otherwise it did great. Tons of fun and I took a few home for lunch

Default Got another monster this morning

Man, the little 2wt is earning it's keep. This fish is the 3rd giant in as many trips. To give an idea of size, those other fish are 10-11"

You know, I was just reading where the IGFA length record for Bluegill is only 10". You have a world record Bluegill there. You ought to submit it.

I caught one like that last year jigging for crappie. When I set the hook he put a serious bend on that jig pole. 11 inches long. Would love to catch one on the fly rod.

If the GMO scientists ever come up with a Bluegill that will reliably grow to 4 lbs, bass and trout will be forgotten.
