Ever went and looked at your states record fish and say to your self..... Ive caught and eat one bigger than that! OMG Its happened to me. I would love to nail the WRBB but as we all know I got a better chance of winnin the lottery a half dozen times in a row of catchin that monster. Ive only seen one 2lb gill in my entire life on the end of my pole. Well make that 2. The other was prolly pushin 3lbs of shellcraker. Dang thang made me madder than a pack of wild dogs on a 3 legged cat when it broke my favorite BnM telescopic pole. Any way....... I was just lookin at my state records and I got alllllllll excited when I seen warmouth record was 1lb 12oz. Ive beat that. I eat that. Ive released a couple back. I got a few holes that in the dead heat of summer I can really put a whappin on em. This year my friends I SHALL BE A BIG BLUEGILL STATE RECORD HOLDER!!!!!!
Do you have a state record you think you may have thrown back? Ive done it and I know other folks who have.
I thank I can do it. I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can I thank I can.
Several years ago, I caught and released the biggest bluegill I had ever seen. Caught it in brother's farm pond in same county where Illinois state record bluegill was caught - in a farm pond. I'm pretty positive it wouldn't have been the state record; but it was still a very, very nice fish.
