Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Well, I missed last week, due to my trip to Louisiana (heat-wave there... not much fishing)

 

Anyway, right from the start, I have to say it was a VERY tough trip. Only caught 5 Bluegills, and 1 Redear.......

 

But two of the Bluegill went 1.7 lb each ! And the one Redear was another MONSTER ! This one had a slightly smaller frame than my 3.2 lb'er did, but it was even fatter ! Weighed it at 3.1 lbs, and I was quick enough with the photos, that it released good and strong :-)

 

The pair of 1.7 lb Bluegill were not so lucky though. They are now swimming in my belly ;-) 

 

Anyway, not bad for a straggler, huh ? It had obviously not laid the first egg.

 

 

One of the 1.7 lb Bluegill.....

 

On the way to the lake, I made a pit stop, and just about walked over this guy !

 

Pretty tattered looking. I suspect it was moulting. Still pretty cool though, huh ?

 

In spite of the tough bite, the 3.1 lb'er by itself, made it a great trip  :-)

 

Peace,

Fish
