Do you love big bluegill?

This was a weekend that makes one say wow its great to be alive. My wife and I went touring for yard sales and new spots for weekend fishing-camping trips. The second yard sale we hit was selling a cortland 7 1/2 foot fly rod,reel, and line. Now I already have 2 flyrods I have not even used, yet tell me who could resist another one for 20.00$. I now have 3.
Next stop was a state park my wife and I want to stay at later this summer.
It has a great looking lake with poor acess. Can not wait to fish there. From there we went to Ticlenaked Lake This is the only lake in the state that has Redear Sunfish in it. The state fish and game dept. claims they were stocked their by a private person both adult and young have been caught there. I of course did not catch one, bu will go back and try again as the water warms. My last stop for the day was a small pond I had caught small pumpkinseeds in the past there. The pearch were spawning just off the shore line
I caught a couple and the eggs and spawn was just runing out of them. So I left them alone for now.
Sunday I went to Millriver which is about 3 miles from my home. I have never caught so many blue gills in my life. I kept 3 dozen to eat and released the rest. 1 inch white twister tails tipped with a piece of worm worked the best. There must hae been 25 people fishing there. In Vermont they allow some fish to be sold most people were fishing to sell them . I have to admitt since they started this market the fish are a lot bigger. 20 years ago a 6 inch seed was rare in the river. The fish I caught so far have run 7 inches and over. Many of our smaller ponds the perch and Pumpkinseeds are tiny. I would think the state would stock some pike in them to see if that would help
