Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I cast out a small mini-mite attempting to catch some bluegill and perch. On the first cast a 6" perch grabs it. As I was bringing him in something just started taking drag like crazy. I kid you not a 20+ pound channel cat goes to the surface and spits the perch out. But the fun wasn't finished. Within seconds two more bass are looking at the perch. One nice one eats it and I pull back hard to let my dad throw the plastic worm to them but I had hooked the stupid green carp. So after going way into the back of my 3lb line the fish tied me up in the anchor rope. I figured that was it but we pulled the anchor up an inch at a time and finally grabbed him. A decent 3.5-4 pounder

Wow! That is one fish story to keep in the archive for show and tell. I'm telling you, get yourself a nice hat/helmet cam to record these awesome moments. They are priceless.
