Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Well, Keystone Dam released some water yesterday, and sure enough, there was a good bit of water coming downriver when I got to my spot.  I walked down the emergency boat ramp and saw two swarms of seagulls diving on bait in the water; good signs.

I get out there, and a gent I know catches three before I can get a line in the water.  Started out with a Powerbait swimshad, and managed to catch a small Sandie on that.  Then, after seeing a bunch of fish hit top, I switched over to a Rebel Pop-R, and caught a couple on that.  Once that slowed, I switched over to a X-rap, and caught a few on that, but it was all slow.  One gent was catching fish after fish on jigs.  I switched over to another stand-by bait, a Mepps Aglia size 3 with a white dressed hook.  It was fish-on after that.

I caught a mix of Sandies, possibly a couple small Hybrids, a small Striper, a LONGEARED SUNFISH (of all things?!?!?!), and lots of LMB's and Kentucky/Spotted Bass.  The bass were on FIRE!  I don't know how many I caught, especially the LMB's.  I caught at least two good-sized LMB's, see the video.  I released all LMB's, and the smaller Sandies, Kentucky Bass, and the Striper.  The bigger Sandies and Kentucky Bass came home with me.

A friend of mine came out, and he caught a large amount of fish as well, including a big Drum (on the video).

Sorry about the jumpy video.  I guess I'll have to replace that camera soon.  It works good for stills and on a tripod, but in the hand, it's jumpy.
