I had 30 bass by 11:00 so I decided to see if the big bluegill were finally willing to play. Once I found the school I caught one almost every cast until I got tired of catching them. Not really any small ones in the group.

As usual, I hooked a few bass on my gulp minnow. I was sure this was a bass, but when I saw it I got real serious about getting it in. I hadn't ever seen one this big.

I am not as good as Vogey at taking pictures but here a couple pics I got. It weight 1.43 lbs. I didn't have a tape so not sure how long it was.

I caught one on a squarebill there a few years ago that looked to be 17 inches long. Ridiculous. We just laighed about it and tossed it back. Now that I am.seeing all these record post I wished i had weighed it amd took a pic! Dangit


When I am not fishing I am thinking about fishing. And mostly what I should have done differently my last trip!

17 inch long Bluegill sounds like a fish tale to me roflmao

The Biggest Bluegill in the World
The world record bluegill recorded by IGFA or the International Gamefish Association was caught in 1950 at Ketona Lake, Alabama. This bluegill weighed in at a whopping 4 pounds 12 ounces and came in at 15 inches long with an astounding girth of 18-¼ inches.

And the biggest Redear
17 inches long
Recently weighed in at Bass Tackle Master of Lake Havasu, Arizona, the new pending world record redear sunfish weighed 6.30 pounds, measured 17 inches long and carried a 20-inch girth.
