Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Since there is a forum for the biggest BG that got away, I thought I would start one for the smallest. Today, after dragging a good fighter through the debris on the edge of the pond, I finally got it up above the water. It was about 1" long if you include the tail. It was even smaller than the fry we stocked about 6 weeks ago. It also dropped off the hook as I was staring at it. Lets see who can top that!

LOL! I need to take a picture the next time I catch a tiny one! I think the smallest one I've ever caught would have been about 3 inches, so you've got ME beat! :-)
Careful with those tiny one pictures! They will haunt you!
My son caught a 2 incher over the summer. Funny story, he screwed up his cast so he was just reeling it back in to recast and when he got the hook out of the water it had this little guy on it. :D
This is cool because at the annual Piney Run Panfish Derby I have always included a 'smallest bluegill' catagory and the smallest gill gets a box of jigs or tackle. By actual measurement as the weighmaster of the event, I believe that the smallest I have ever put to the tape was 1- 1/16 th of an inch. Check that out on a ruler and that is pretty small...literally just out of the yoke sac!
Well Sharon, now that you've gone and let that butterbean learn that he CAN get off that hook by himself, he's probably going to be stealing your bait for the rest of his life!!!!!! You should have grabbed him and strung him up. Then you could write a country song about him. "Just a string of butterbeans".

Boogieman
Just a string of butterbeans, that I pulled up through the greens. la la......
Okay Sharon, there you go, now you're getting in the flow.
With that string of butterbeans, that you pulled up through the greens.
Oh how far now will you go. Tell me girl I've got to know.
Will you teach us how to sing, about our strings of butterbeans?
I can teach you how to sing, but can't teach you how to string,
I can teach you how to wish, but can't teach you how to fish.
Oh, the distance I would go, just to catch a fish to show,
in the space next to my name, there would be a fish to frame.
You Go Girl!
Maybe about 6 years ago up in saginaw michigan my younger brothers and my pops were fishing for catfish on a boat. My brother always like to use worms even though they would always catch the smaller cats. Well one day he cast out and his pole doubled over and he snatched fighting like he had a monster cat on whining his arms were hurting him. Well he finally got the fish up to the boat and he brought about a 2 to 3 inch bluegill. We teased him the whole day talking about the monster he had. We knew what had happened but we just had to much fun teasing him so havent we havent told him to this day.
the smallest one i cought was about 3 1/4" long
So far, I'm still winning!!!!!
