That's one heck of a gill. Very nice. Thought for a second you had to be in South Carolina. If any of you ever get the chance. Try fishing Stevens creek above the spillway dam for some huge gills. You'll fill a cooler fast. My biggest gill was from there and was 2 and 3/4 pounds.

That gill is gorgeous . Considering where youcaught it (Ohio) it must be old with the slower froth rate than down south. Awesome fish!

Now that's a BIG bluegill! Nice catch! I'd love to break in the 2wt with a fish like that!

Cool Re: Largest Bluegill I've Ever Caught

Nice fish for sure, especially for Ohio but most anywhere it would draw attention. Do you know what strain of Bluegill it is? I've seen Hybrids and OTS (Texas strain Coppernose) get that big even up north but never a commonplace Ohio one. (I grew up there and fish there often) That's pushing IGFA World Record tippet class for sure. Congrats at any rate!

Nice fish. I caught this one out of my pond a couple of days ago.
