Default first 'gill on a dry this year

At the local lake this evening having fun with the bluegill population. It's been cold the past couple nights (right at freezing) so I tied on a "green weenie" and caught a few 'gills. The better ones were hanging close to old submerged dead wood.

The wind died just as the sun was about to set and suddenly 'gills were rising to take something on the surface! I had no idea what they were feasting on, but I quickly tied on a #16 foam ant and cast to a rise.

I was a bit startled when a 'gill hit so hard it cleared the water!

It lasted for 15-20 minutes then it was over, but I managed to catch several in that short span of time. Actually fast enough action that my back was ready for a rest after it was over.
