Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Hey y'all, got to fish the warmwater discharge at Brunner Island today on the Susquehanna River in PA. Good wading conditions, low water, clear, but tough fishing. Cold this early AM- 12 F with some wind.

Ran into one guy who got 6 smallmouths from 13 to 17 inches on 1/8 th oz jigs. I got my first fish of the year...a 18 inch channel cat on a Zoom Fat Albert on a 3/16 th oz jig. Also got yet another cat on the jig and a nice 16 inch smallie on the same. Missed about 6 or 8 strikes. Cold with the wind and trying to detect strikes in the river current.

Fun though! Eerie feeling in the warm water and the mist rising all around you but it was great to finally catch a couple fish after a six-week drought!

enjoy the pix!

I Know Thats Right Buddy. It sucks being on a fish drought. Plan to catch my first fish of the year in Oceanside Ca. this week. I'll be there for 10 days and hopefully can post up some new pics.
