I just joined this site and happened to see that you stated the iowa state record bluegill size. I live in Cedar Rapids just nice to see another member from Iowa. Nice pics and congrats on your largest catch gives me something to work towards. I caught a 9" gill about 2 weeks ago but it was only 7.3 ounces nothing like the slabs in your pics.

I've got UNC in my office pool. If they win it all it will keep me from finishing last.
