Hello, I finally decided to join the site... Bruce asked me to post this picture on this site so here it is. I thought it was kinda cool that this bluegill went after a chug-bug topwater. This fish was about 7 1/2 inches long.
That is a great picture!
I was using a bass-sized fly rod popper Friday night around 9:30pm...and ended up catching a bluegill on that. I think it was a size 2 hook! Switched to a #8 woolly bugger and caught 5 more bluegills.
