I picked up this potential other methods state record bluegill this weekend at Wheeler Branch Reservoir. I caught it on an earthworm Plnor fishing with my modified Pole and Line No Reel technique. It was 10.5 inches and weighed 1.08 pounds. It should replace the existing record fish caught in Sam Rayburn in 2008. The fish was released.

Nice bluegill! I've done some freediving out at Wheeler Branch and there are some nice bluegill in that place. The weed beds will form a vertical wall in about 15 feet of water, and I've found spawning beds down at the base.

Congrats on this record !

A one pound bluegill is a rarity on any lake and especially in Texas.

I'll be grinning big too if my day ever comes. grin

Tom thanks for the reply and really useful information about the beds off the 15 foot weed line. I will give those a try next time I am out there. Who knows maybe I will end up with a 2 pounder lol.

Doctorsring that is a great video. Now I just need to find out where they are feeding the walleye.
