"Yes it was! These big fish never seem to be that big in the photos, but in person they are just huge. So many people I talk to say "How can you get so excited about catching Bluegill?" They are thinking of the little park…"
I see some of the jigs that you are using, they look good. I think you would love my bream reaper jig! Check them out on my page here, www.thebreamreaper.co, or my ebay store crazy4bream. I nedd to come out to cali and try it out. Do you keep most of your catch?
Thanks for turning me to the sickle type jigs and hooks. Got my batch today, and they got deadly straight out of the bag. Drew my blood during examination of the batch. This is like a hybrid between circle hooks and the Owner's wide gap jigs. Intimidating, to say the least.
