Do you love big bluegill?
In the photo below is 3.25 hours of fishing a week ago.
Bait - maggot (spikes). Gear: cane pole & float. Public Pond 15 minutes from Chicago.
All fish were counted and released. BigBluegill.com members can get in on a little contest and the person closest to the correct total will win a set of panfish floats valued at $33. 8-pieces of new top secret Attack - finesse panfish tackle will be yours - if you can be the closest to the correct number of fish caught (including the one that hopped out for the picture - yes!).
Members get 1 guess, 1 number. The contest ends Cinco de Mayo and the winner will be announced on my radio show - MAY 7th.
Here are some clues:
1. My hand was killing me
2. The majority of this bag (95%) is made up of bluegills
3. I was the only one catching these
4. 7 fish were put back and are not pictured
5. yes that escapee counts to the total
6. One hook was used
7. It was a blast!
My radio listeners are eligible and if guesses come in, I will post their numbers here so that everyone can see numbers through the entire contest.
There will be a tie-breaker. The tie-breaker will be announced here and I will allow the people to guess involved in the tie-breaker.
Have fun- we will reveal the Secret Attack tackle the week after the contest as well... Revolution participants, you can then participate and get your hands on some of this at a BigBluegill.com 50% off discount. Sound good? I hope this is fun for all that participate and a little something to give back to the community of the best anglers in the world. Bluegill anglers.
I believe it is STILL wide open. New guesses will be good as no one has guessed the exact number.
I had another banner day - this time on the DuPage river near us (a small, shallow river) where the action was hopping! Keep up the guesses... someone will win and someone will get fired. No, wait that is the Apprentice, no one will get fired.
