Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Hi Everyone,
Despite the 100 + degree heat index in the St. Louis area, Ty & I went fishing for a few hours this morning & tried out some of the new "Wiggla" jigs I've started making. We were fishing with 20th oz. Yellow Chart. jigs and White plastics.

It didn't take long for us to get into the fish, but we were surprised at the quality and quantity of Crappie caught. If it's this good when it's hot, can't wait to see what fishing will be like in the fall.

Below are a few pics I took. We only measured one fish and it was 15". Should have checked some others, but wanted to get them back in the water after a quick photograph. All the fish were released unharmed, with the hope of catching them again at a later date.

Till Next Time......

Tight Lines,
Greg

Great crappies! I am guessing that these fish came from small, private water by the looks of the surroundings...
