Must be something in the water. A portly one for sure. 😵

Bluegills might be pound for pound the hardest fighting fish. And shaped tall so they really swim funny when hooked and you can't turn their head, so to speak. One this size would be extra fun to catch!!

Cool catch!

I wonder what that fights like. The little guys turn sideways and have that speedy darting motion. I’ve caught drum on the fly pole but they don’t have the speed.

They are a lot of fun to catch on flies and readily take large dries like #14 Mosquitoes. Who doesn't like dry fly fishing?!

I wish poppers worked around here. I normally need to get 6-8’ deep for the fish to be decent sized. Only thing up top are the little guys.
