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! :)

Easy, now, Bruce. Take a deep breath! :-D
Yea wooooooo ya horse there Bruce!!!

Biggens is good and all But I prefer em in the 6 to 8 range. Its the best size for whole fryin. Weird thing is Most folks from the north aint never hadem whole fried. Where I work Its alot of folks from the northern region and after eatn the whole fries they have shared the technique with friends and now there throwin the biggest ones back! Aint nothin beter than a whole fri bream FINS and all. Em them crispy fins are some good eatin. Like Tater chips!

Im guilty of 5ers. Wow them things is like getn a yerlin deer. TENDER!
Reckon I love tropheys just as much as I love eatin the lil boogers!
I've eaten plenty of bluegill under 6 inches. They're a little more work, but the reward is great.

If the water body can support it, I'll eat 'gills of any size under 9 inches, but then I always get a warm fuzzy feeling from keepin' 7's and tossin' back 9's and up.
After a day of successful fishing, as my partner and I are removing our catch from the live well, he always barks out his signature line...."I want all the small ones!"

Jeremy, your makin' me hungry....just might field dress a few...haven't done that in years.
Which reminds me of why I really love bluegill...

Fun to manage for trophies and catch trophies,

But also a blast to harvest and eat.

How can you go wrong???? :-)
You can't!.....thats why my Bass, Walleye, and Muskie rods have been collecting dust!
Kinda like fried chicken! Its always better with the skin on. HAHA
Hey musky if your gonna field dress them and whole fry em. How bout a video on how to do that. Some people only know how to fillet em and they wont keep smaller fish wich leads to Keeping more trophy fish just so they have something to eat.
Jeremy ,when you get a chance give us Notherner's the uptake on the lowdown of Whole fryin' bluegill...wanna try it!
You have no worries, the rural southern folks that only identify these fish as "bream". Will have no idea what the word "internet" means. Probably think it would be some type of a trap to place in the creek for catching fish. LOL I'm making fun of myself, for I am one of these offroad folks. And more yet with the explosion of northern folks moving to the south in recent years. The migration of Mexicans from below the border our sweet Sunny South as once known no longer is. Here is a thought for all you linguistic minded. What we call in the south "dry-land fish" ya'll call "morels". I was up north a buddy ask me to go shroomin just a few year ago. I honestly did not know until we hunted and then compared to what I already knew. Good Fishin
SHROOMIN!!!!! Better get a good pair of gloves before you ease out there to the cow pasture. No tippin that increases your chances of bein caught!
