Do you love big bluegill?
Today, befor I went to college I had a few hrs. on my hands so I went fishing. I had fished this pond befor and cought some big cat fish and some huge bass. No one ever fishes this pond because it's right in front of a fitness gym, but I do. So today I thought I would try out some blugill fishing. I had my fly rod and my gillrod with worms. I was catching them left and right but they were all about the same size 4 to 5 inchs only. So I thought some bigger ones would come out later. Then I started to think mybe they have a growth stunt. Turns out they do no one were I live likes to eat bluegill so they just through them back and keep the bass and cat. With no real predators to keep there population in check they out grew the pond. Now you only get the little ones. So if you have your own pond don't be the guy who says throw them back keep some. For every 2 lbs of blue gills I keep 1/2 lb of bass. thats just me, and my gills stay big with a good population of bass and gills. I love the taste of bluegills. It's a shame that such a nice little pond got delt a bad hand.
