Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Headed out to Lake Manatee and launched the kayak before daylight. Caught four bass to four pounds on a black popper before the sun was up. That bited ended at dawn. So, I pulled out the 3-weight fly rod and started catch hand-sized bluegill. End up with 40 -- all on my Myakka Minnow. Home by noon.

I've been lusting at a chance to get to Florida just to chase the gills down there. I just can't quite fishing local long enough to re arainge my goals. lol Thank you for sharing, ole Mike
Nice fish and even better day fishing.
That's a nice picture. I fish out of a kayak too. Is Lake Manatee in Manatee County?
Yes, the lake is in Manatee County. It's nine miles east of I-75 off S.R. 64.
That's an exceptional photo. Is that picture also in the photo section? If so, I want to feature it please.
