Great article - congrats!

I lived in Oklahoma for almost ten years while in the Air Force and married a local gal so we go back often. My brother in law and I had a lot of great Friday nights overnight into Saturday morning in the middle of the summer out at American Horse Lake and a couple of other smaller lakes going after gills. I kinda always thought of Sunfish as a big deal there - but came to realize not many other people did. (I posted in another post that the same brother in law once caught a 15 inch (stocked) trout while we were bluegill fishing - he exclaimed loudly " man!, that trash fish is messing with my bluegill fishing" :)

HAHA, MARK!!!! CELEB STATUS, haha!!!!!! I did finally get to read the write up YESTERDAY!!!!! OKLAHOMA is a bass state or a catfish state, not a BLUEGILL STATE!!!!! I catch both chasing BLUEGILL!!!!!! It was an HONOR to be ASKED about MY PASSION of FLY RODDIN and BLUEGILLIN!!!!

I WOULD have chosen one of the other PICTURES SUBMITTED, but I am NOT an EDITOR!!!!!!!
