...so bluegill had to do. Found this photo digging through vacation pics.
Used my 3-weight and tossed out some topwater poppers, foam hoppers, and small jigs to haul in some gills to get my fishing fix last week. K.C. got in the action too with a spincast and bit o' bagel.
This guy was pretty typical of the haul. We caught (& released) a bunch. They were really eager "eaters." Had a largemouth bass engulf a bluegill I had on the line and put up a good fight for about 5 minutes. Unfortunately, he spit out the gill before I could get him out of the weeds.
Gills are fun, but hope to get back to my coldwater pursuits this weekend.
