Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

CAUGHT ON A 3" BERKLEY MINNOW WITH A POGY TAIL FIRETIGER. WAS PITCHING IT UNDERHAND WHERE THE WATER FALLS OUT OF A SMALL DAM. ALMOST NO WATER WAS COMING OUT & I SAW SOME BIG FISH. I THREW IT UP AGAINST THE WALL & BAM I HAD ON A NICE FISH. ANYONE HAVE A NET? NOPE. ONE GUY LAUGHED NOW WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO. I WAS FISHING ON A HILL 15' ABOVE THE WATER. THIS IS AN INTERMEDIATE ARE WITH ANOTHER STEP DOWN WITH 3' OR ROCKS BEFORE YOU HIT WATER WITH THE LOW WATER CURRENTLY. THERE WAS A FEW 12 YEAR OLD BOYS CHEERING ME ON. I GOT THE PIKE OVER THE ROCKS INTO THE BOTTOM AREA. I MANAGED TO DRAG IT UP TO THE SHORE WHERE I REACHED DOWN & GRABBED IT. WENT TO THE CAR & GOT MY CAMERA & PHONE. CALLED MY FRIEND & HE SAID TO LET IT FEED ON THE OVERPOPULATED BLUEGILL POPULATION. ONE GUY SAID MAN I WOULD TAKE IT HOME & EAT IT. MY FRIENDS SON TOOK A PHOTO. I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW HE FISHED. I HAD A HARD TIME REVIVING IT, BUT WITH SOME OF THE 12 YEAR OLD GIVING ME ADVICE I GOT IT TO SWIM AWAY. MY BAD! WON'T TAKE SO LONG NEXT TIME.

I have seen folks fishing off fairly high bridges before and wondered what they would do if they caught a big fish. lol  That was a good pike, Frank.  Congratulations!
