Do you love big bluegill?

Giant bluegill using the Modica spooning method.

Here's a massive bluegill caught on Bill "Musky" Modica's spooning method.  This method has been heavily featured lately by In-Fisherman Magazine, both in print and on their nationally acclaimed fishing show.

 

This fish was over a foot long, and looked like it was taking steriods.  I'd love for Bill to describe this particular spoon and why he likes it so much.  Bill recommended I use this setup, and it worked like a charm.

GREAT FISH !!!  Is this the spooning system where you take the triple hook off and replace it with a single hook that I saw on in fisherman????  Maybe I should check it out.    Again, wow what a fish!!

I can't believe the size of those gill tabs, it looks like an elephant with fins!

I've been told that I should be careful with "non-food items".  LOL

Bruce again that is a very beautiful and special I couldn't imagine a gill being that large  and if I had it, it would be a permanent  fixture in my pond. Bruce did your dentist ever talk to you you about holding solid things with your teeth. LOL

A true grip of successful spooning!

You got me beat Tony I only looked about 25 times and enjoyed it every time. No doubt it is a magnificent fish and thank goodness he shared with us so we have that option to see what we all want to enjoy.
