Went to Athens today to try to find some of those big gills I keep hearing about. We got a late start to the day so we didn't hit the water until about 8:30. After an hour of trying different spots we hit pay dirt. Caught them on crickets in 8 to 12'of water using small jig heads and plain hooks.

My buddy's 1st keeper of the day.


A few more from me.


The big one of the day and my new PB. A hair over 10"

Great post and some very nice fish. Congratulations on the PB!




Side Note: That 10" Bluegill could qualify for a catch&release record if it was released. Also a weight record. Either way still a super fish.

Thanks guys!

That big one weighed in at 14 ounces. She was released to the grease... food

Also the females had eggs the size of the early spawn stage and the males were starting to milk.

That should mean that the bite should be hot for the next few weeks. bannana2

Bluegill will usually stay pretty active all throughout the summer and fall months! If you can locate the schools you can get some GREAT ACTION just about year around. Again you guys caught some AWESOME FISH! thumb

I was a custom to the gills in up in Wisconsin where you only get 1 spawn a year and a monster gill was 8". I think I can get used to these texas gills grin

I'm going out with my dad tomorrow morning, I'll report what we find.

Thanks, nice meeting you also. That little boat just needs me to finally pull the trigger and buy a side scan and then it will be perfect.


You will probably start seeing me out there more often, I'm thinking about finding a few acres down that way to build me a little weekend fishing cabin.
