Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Robert Boland just gave me a revelation. Most of y'all don't call bluegills bluegill down south, right? If you're calling them bream, then maybe people in the South U.S. may be searching the internet under "bream" and this site doesn't show up. I think that I'll try to start incorporating the word "bream" into a few more discussions and blogs to try to help this situation. Big bream rock, too! :)

I think this is true once you're south of the mason dickson line. After 23 years I'm still not fully countrified, But I have learned the lingo.
We call large males Bulls! large females Sows! Go figure...
