Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Literally. It wasnt but just a couple years ago and I was changing their diapers and rocking them to sleep. Now I am baiting their hooks, removing their fish, snapping tons of photos, and just having a great time fishing and exploring the outdoors with these gals! Yesterday we spent about an hour hiking down to the pond, drilling and scooping out numerous holes just for fun and even did a little fishing while out there as well. Since the fish were hugging tight to the bottom and not biting well enough to keep the attention span of 5 year olds, I had to get creative to keep their appetites wet. Just a few simple distractions and a couple rehook jobs and we had the priviledge of catching the same 3 fish over and over again. By the time they each caught a few fish (all by theirselves I might add) those bluegill barely had any life left in em. About an hour is maximum for a young kids ice fishing trip and only about 10 minutes of that time is actually spent fishing, the rest is spent just adventuring and exploring outdoors! Here are a couple more photos of our adventure.





As you can see in the pics, I got the boys out there too. We have just as much fun with the boys, however they just dont make nearly as catchy of a title or story line as the girls do!

Very nice pics, Nate. Sounds just like my daughters and fishing, although one of them is pretty good at concentrating, and caught her personal best fish last summer, a 12" largemouth, which was really exciting for a then five year old.

The baby is still in diapers, but I know she'll want to join her sisters fishing just as soon as she's big enough to hold a rod :-)
