Thread: Blue gill frenzy

  1. #1

    Default Blue gill frenzy

    Today was my second day fishing with my fly rod. I didnt catch any trout today (due to fishing in a pond) but I did catch about 30 blue gills. (Not all of them were blue gills) heres a few pics of the cool ones. My father caught about a 3lbs white crappie but it wasnt on a fly. I didnt get any pics of that one.

    Sure is. And the best part (to me anyway) is that I got all of them on a fly.

    Call me crazy, but I would much rather go after the ferocious bluegill than stocker trout any day. I've been out chasing big bluegill all weekend with a 2/3wt glass rod and a pocket full of foam beetles and poppers. Talk about FUN!

    Congrats! You've gotten yourself good-n-hooked.

    Nice sunny day + pond full of bluegill + fly rod = giddy as a school girl for me.

    Awesome man. I caught about 50-60 bluegill myself this weekend. The one on the top left is a Pumkinseed. Those are my favorite type of panfish because their colors are beautiful and they fight well for their size. They can be extremely plump and muscular in some areas.
