Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

My 7 year old daughters 2nd fish ever caught and its a PIG!

So I decided to take the kids to a small and I mean small farm pond down the road. The house has been empty for a couple of years so I figured Id give  it a try. The pond is really small maybe 2000 sq ft.  I was expecting to get a couple of small 5 " gills if we were lucky. First cast she pulls out this Brute! 2 pounds 11 ounces, 16 " girth and a whooping length of 15". Shes tickled to death and its going on the wall for her. Caught it on a redworm and bobber. Called my buddy up and he instantly caught a 11 1/2" , 1 pound 7 ounce gill thats a trophy in its own right.

 

Also I believe this to be a bluegill but could be wrong. Several people have seen it and they all believe it to be. Maybe you guys can verify?

That's not a bluegill, it's a much rarer GREAT BIG BLUEGILL!!! - Poor Richard says, "Good for you, fisherwoman of the year." If you hadn't caught it, it would've been baked during the next drought and lost forever!
Wow! I'm so happy for her! Something she will never forget. Absolutely a AWESOME fish.
I can't got to the site with the pond picture. Can you send it to BBG so I can see it too?
