Do you love big bluegill?
In the photo below is 3.25 hours of fishing a week ago.
Bait - maggot (spikes). Gear: cane pole & float. Public Pond 15 minutes from Chicago.
All fish were counted and released. BigBluegill.com members can get in on a little contest and the person closest to the correct total will win a set of panfish floats valued at $33. 8-pieces of new top secret Attack - finesse panfish tackle will be yours - if you can be the closest to the correct number of fish caught (including the one that hopped out for the picture - yes!).
Members get 1 guess, 1 number. The contest ends Cinco de Mayo and the winner will be announced on my radio show - MAY 7th.
Here are some clues:
1. My hand was killing me
2. The majority of this bag (95%) is made up of bluegills
3. I was the only one catching these
4. 7 fish were put back and are not pictured
5. yes that escapee counts to the total
6. One hook was used
7. It was a blast!
My radio listeners are eligible and if guesses come in, I will post their numbers here so that everyone can see numbers through the entire contest.
There will be a tie-breaker. The tie-breaker will be announced here and I will allow the people to guess involved in the tie-breaker.
Have fun- we will reveal the Secret Attack tackle the week after the contest as well... Revolution participants, you can then participate and get your hands on some of this at a BigBluegill.com 50% off discount. Sound good? I hope this is fun for all that participate and a little something to give back to the community of the best anglers in the world. Bluegill anglers.
A guess of 75 came across through email. (no one has guessed the correct number yet).
1 guess per : )
I wanted to egg on anyone who has not participated yet.
(if there are multiple guesses - I will go with the first guess you put).
93 was not either - 96 was closer.
great catch. there a bushell basket full
99 fish in the net.
