Do you love big bluegill?
I ran into a fella while getting my car fixed and the conversation turned to fishing. He told me that he and three buddies took 12,000 bluegill out of a local lake last year. He further stated that they kept and cleaned every fish. I told him that appeared to be a little excessive and that i didn't keep anything under seven inches and limited my catch to a maximun of 25 and released any thing over nine inches. He said they didn't catch many fish over seven inches. I wonder why? I'm looking for comments on both sides. I think 25 gills a day is plenty!
First I will say that I do not condone this. I only keep what I plan on eating that day. This week in 5 outings have caught around 250 Bluegill, and 6 Largemouth. I think it could be done, and some guys I know would, and then never eat the fish. That is why I don't share very many fish stories with people out of my circle.
