Do you love big bluegill?
There's a current discussion over at Pondboss regarding managing a BOW for trophy fish, in this case Largemouth Bass. There appears to be a definite distinction between a trophy fish, and a large fish, but as of yet I haven't seen anyone step up and state their opinion of what constitutes either one.
Perhaps this is an area where BBG members could voice their opinion. After all, the incredible amount of angling talent we have on board, coupled with the substantial numbers of bluegills that we see, should give us a pretty good insight into the big vs. trophy debate.
So lets hear your thoughts: What does it take for a Bluegill to be considered big, and how much over and above that does one have to get before you would call it a trophy?
Fishing with my grandchildren.....4 inches is big and 6 is a trophy.....A little fish can give these guys a lot of excitement....Start them off like that so they can truly appreciate and value a big bluegill one day in the future...Size matters but not right now......
