Do you love big bluegill?

Lincoln, Nebraska dentist Bruce Condello with 3 lb. Richmond Mill bluegill.

 

Here's the first decent photo out there of Lincoln, Nebraska dentist Bruce Condello with a 3 lb., 1 oz. bluegill caught two weeks ago at Richmond Mill Lake in North Carolina.  The fish took a 1/16 oz. Road Runner, with a black body and green tail.  The fish was released and still swims...ready to be captured again.  A story will be published in Pond Boss magazine in the coming months.

Beautiful. Just plain beautiful. Dentist, pond master, and loving parent of the ultimate gill's genetic tree. What more can one ask for.

Great fish!  How deep and what test/type of line?

Beautiful,, And very respectful release. I have to tip my hat to you on that because i doubt i could do the same, I always said id mount my first 2lbr well i caught and release it, Now im looking for an almost impossible 3lbr to mount..
