Went to the creek this weekend and caught a few.

This guy looked like some kind of hybrid. He had a much bigger mouth than other bluegills I have seen


Good sized gill


Loved the stripes on this guy.


He was little but had such pretty blue color around his mouth.




Biggest of the day. Put up quite a fight.

All fish were caught on 5wt floating line 6lb "tippet"(its really just mono) using either a chartreuse betts fancy popper or a gold flash minnow.

The first and 4th are green sunfish. Got them in our pond and they can be very aggressive. I use bigger hooks because they have a habit of swallowing the smaller ones. I even had one that was the size of a #6 hook end up on my hook. roflmao It was as big as the hook was. eeks

Agreed, that's a Green sunfish, those Blue Gills are very nice, imagine the fight on 2 or 3 weight.

I've been doing the grocery shopping and slipping in an extra $20 cash back at checkout out every time.

So far I've outffitted myself with an Orvis Recon 8 wt outfit and I'm working on some wading gear.

Hopefully the wife doesn't check up on my internet activity and see this.

Love those big Greenies. Our old golf course ponds were full of them, some to almost 1.5 pounds and 12". They attack worms, pheasant tails, and hoppers with abandon. Fun fish.
