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.
Side note- the winner should agree to tell me what they caught with their loot they get from guessing the closest.
Every time I want to type something, I almost trip and give away clues.
By the way - I have already posted the winning number in a delayed blog post so there is no suggested tampering - you know to make it official and all so everyone has a fair shot, not a pal or bud or someone from my fishing club. These will be shipped out to you the winners.
Did he say winner(s)?! Yes
Get your guess in. Search your feelings... feel the bluegill force in that net - good luck bluegill Jedi!
We will see who has the bluegill force....
