Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

With pending bad weather  for the Maryland early next week I took an opportunity to try my luck on Unicorn Lake. Launched the buggy and got under weigh just after 3:00 PM and went until Dark. Score for today was 3 Yellow Perch all around 10"-12", one 12"+ Crappie, 1 micro Bass, 1 12" Pike and about a dozen or so gills with two of them very nice ( one under 9" and one 9 1/2").

It took awhile to find them as I was just picking a fish here and there. Then just before sunset I dialed them in.

Since I haven't been out much lately I haven't posted in awhile. Sure was good to get some pullage! I forgot to re-set the date on my camera.

Hi Ron,

I have been told you are the Bluegill Guru and I love to learn, how long do you fish for gills,up until what month?  Can you give me some tips on how to fish gills this time of year?

 

Thank You,

Robert

 

Robert,

Depending upon the weather I will go until at least Thanksgiving. I live on Maryland's Eastern Shore. As the air and water temperatures drop, I look for deeper structure in the pond/lakes I fish. I also catch Crappie, Pickeral and Yellow Perch with the gills. On a warm sunny day I'll adjust a little shallower.

I don't consider myself a Guru. I too am learning all of the time and enjoy forums like this one to learn as much as I can.
