Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Is there any kind of information gathered that will show what areas in the United States the true trophy-sized (2 lbs and up) Bluegill are caught? It would be interesting to see where the largest fish are caught, and what season and even what bait/lure was used. For serious fishermen like me that are out there trying to break the world record, this info would be highly regarded. We could possibly start something here like an "OVER 2lb. CLUB!", which would be for members to post their photos and information. What do you think? Comments?

Check the websites for the Parks & Wildlife or Dept. of Natural Resources or whatever your state calls it. They should have a list of the records for your state, and probably tell where the record was caught.

Twelve lines down, you'll find the one I want to beat - 2.02 lb, 12.5" 'gill. Caught on a #6 Clouser (on a fly rod), but that's an all-tackle record for Texas.
you really need to take a trip to the ham bro! tarrant city actually i would be more than happy to show you what it takes to land a nice gill from keytona ive caught dozens...
Hi Jeff...

The Southern and Western States are probably home to some of the largest "Bull Bluegills" around. There are a couple of reasons for this. 1. They are usually Florida 'Strain' fish and 2. There is no ICE in these locations, so the fish do not really have a 'True' dormant period. They do slow down a little but not as much as in the Northern Lakes that Ice over... so this adds to their Growing time.

I fish a Lake in Southern California where fish of 2 lbs are not uncommon. The Lake record is 3 Lbs 8 Ozs... there is a 'Redear" record on the same Lake of 3 lbs 12 Ozs. These fish are not easy to catch... they didn't get that big by being 'Stupid' but if you have the patience and the will to try different tactics and expedriment you can lure these fish from the depths pretty consistently. They are Big and they have 'Attitude" with a capital 'A'.

Regards

Rob
