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 :-)
man o man, i'd trade my left marble for one of those. congrats.
THEY CALL ME FISH IN MY NECK OF THE WOULDS 2, I KNOW WERE NOT THE ONLY 1'S. IM STILL TRYING TO TACKLE THAT KIND OF FISH YOUVE REELED IN, OUT HERE IN SOUTHERN ARIZONA, AND I CANT WAIT TO HAVE PICS LIKE YOURS. WE ALWAYS TRY TO GO BIGGER DONT WE, THOSE ARE AWESOME.
