I think I had a nice fish on tonight...for about five seconds.

I was fishing with nitecrawlers for red ear. I caught a bluegill...about six inches. I was getting ready to run in before sunset. I was motoring the little Gill across the surface...then suddenly he went airborne. What! He fell back into the water...wham, something hit him. Splashed him on the surface....then something took him...ran for maybe five seconds then let him go.

This Gill was the size of your hand. How big does a bass need to be to take one that size.

A 6-7lb bass would go for that size bluegill.

When I was a kid, this very thing happened to me twice in one day in Florida. I ended up catching both bass that attacked the bluegills. Both bass weighed between 7 and 8 pounds according to an old fashioned Zebco De-Liar.

"How big does a bass need to be to take one that size?"

Considering the number of bass that have been caught on baits bigger than the bass being caught, 10 oz.

For a better guestimation, define "airborne".

I'm gonna guess 6.3 lbs. Not a tenth of an ounce less.
