Caught this Bluegill on a private creek in South Fort Worth. It was my first ever Bluegill. I think I've fallen in love with these things!

You are hooked! Catching Bluegill and other sunfish is definitely an addiction. Now that you know they are there you can size your tackle and choose your bait to target them. It looks like you found a fishing hole with some large ones in it.

Welcome to the sport and to the forum.
Seventy years of chasing the elusive sunfish.
