Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I finally got out and it turned out to be a great day for me. My target was Bluegills but it didn't work out as intended. I started out with Canadian Crawlers and ended up going to my old stand by which is a 1/16 oz jig. I found the color didn't seem to matter much but my main go to color today was a red and white jig head with a red twister with a white tail. Caught numerous fish but will list only the fish I kept. 23 Black Crappies, 3 Perch, 4 seeds and 4 Gills. Water temp was 64 degrees and fished jigs at a very very slow retrieve with my new Pflueger Arbor (Reel runs smooth as silk) with Sufix 6lb test line. Want to thank my sister and law who made today possible for me, THANKS PAM
