Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I had the chance to go to Pohick Bay, on the Potomac, several times this week. I stuck to fishing a curly-tail grub jig under a bobber and tipped with red worm, under and around a fishing pier. 

Monday was pretty great! I got a good handful of what I'd call medium-large bluegill (as long as my hand, about 8"), and one decent crappie. I wasn't really prepared to save them, so I let them all go. Tuesday and Wednesday were snowy and freezing windy, respectively. But Thursday I got into the bluegill again, and today my first two catches were some nice crappie, followed by a bunch of bluegill. It was actually steadily raining when I caught the crappie. 

Overall, a pretty nice stretch. I'll put up some pix later. I am really looking forward to Spring hitting full-on. It's about time!!

Nice one from the other day

Sadly, the spawn is quickly winding down here on the Twin Lakes.
