    That is my sage bass "bluegill" rod. Granted its a "6" wt, there can be alot of wind at this lake and this rod with the outbound II on it just cuts thru it like its not even there. Plus there are some bass in the 3lb range that cruse the shallows around all these gills so I want to have some rod with me.

    I brought the 3wt with me today, that should be even more fun then the 6. I know I also labled the top fish as a hybrid, but after looking at it some more Im pretty sure they are redear and not the hybrids. I had a hybrid hooked but it flung the fly before I could land it. Going back at it today, so maybe more pictures to come.

    That's the kind of lunch break we all need! Looking forward to more pics and hopefully you can land the big bass some time.

    That is awesome. I finally found a great local pond full of gills and bass, but only have permission to fish it on Sundays. So hard to know it it 5 minutes away at lunch and not be able to go!

    Would love a tussle with those gills. THe local pond suffer from slime and other green **** already by the end of April. The chemicals from the grass seed field adjacent the pond feeds the vegetation. The size and number of fish has decreased. I still go there. The tug of the bluegill is a fine thing.

    Continued my tussle with the big gills today, another solid winner. Was definitly WAY more fun with the 3wt.

    This guy was the biggest and gnarlyest, so that warrented his picture being taken

    It's a sad reality! The main reason I purchased a float tube is only because I can fish the places the shore fishin' guys can't get to!

    Easy access means very little fish (lots of fishing pressure from the thousand bait boys) and usually trash all over the place.

    I C&R and don't trash the water ........ but most guys today don't enjoy the wonderful experience that I do?

    sg,

    Nice 'gill! I'm doing the exact thing ..... and having the time of my life with my 3wt!



    Same thing with trout! The easy access streams are almost fishless, but the hard to get to remote streams are packed with wild trout.

    That's why I got a float tube as well. Still hard to find places clear enough to launch it though. Parking can also be an issue.

    I hadnt been taking pictures lately as I've been catching too many fish to use the camera haha. The bluegill have been nuts all week, and I forget how much fun my 3wt is to use. Some of the bluegill are so big it feels like the rods going to break and I cant pick them up out of the water haha. Also spice up the mix with a small largemouth now and then.

    bluegil!!!!!!!!!



    Still catching em. My mom went to a park I told her about today and she said she just slayed them. Almost every cast was a gill or baby bass, then she got surprised by a 12" catfish!
