Do you love big bluegill?
I was watching one of my favorite YouTube fishing programs, Cornell shown here in the attached video, working a small lake north of where he normally fishes in Maryland.
So, Cornell normally targets bass . . . but he is no "bass snob" and he catches a couple of very nice bluegills. One really large one is shown at just before the 18 minute mark on the video. He really gets excited. I would, too!
I'm learning that more and more states have some very nice panfish!
