Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

 Here's a humorous anecdote from John Gierach in his book ' No shortage of Good Days': " I remember hanging out in a slightly tweedy fly shop one afternoon where the owner was promoting the first generation of powdered desiccant used as a fly floatant .A young hippie friend of mine walked in-complete with long hair and Tie dyed T shirt-and the owner asked, "Have you been using the magic powder?" The guy said," Yeah man , but not when I'm fishing ! "

  Here's another from the same book in the chapter entitled, "Cheating" :   "  a well known local poacher once told me that he'd hiked the long way around to a private lake carrying a belly boat , but when he got there , he discovered he'd forgotten his flippers. So using a pair of pliers and the roll of duct tape he always carries, he fashioned a pair of flippers using two aluminum NO TRESPASSING signs he pried off nearby trees . When I made a skeptical face , he showed me the flippers. He still had them behind the seat of his pickup"
