Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I just wanted to extend a huge "Thank You" to Herman Brothers Pond Management, and Nate Herman, who is a member of Big Bluegill for their incredible hospitality they extended me this last weekend!

Their operation is absolutely first class, and offers people in the Illinois, and the Midwest a chance to catch a really huge hybrid bluegill.

Take a look at this great fish. We caught several hybrid bluegill in the 1-1 3/4 pound range, and we also caught quite a few legitimate one-pound class purebred bluegill.

Here's a photo of one of the amazing hybrids. Can you believe the body condition?!? This fish was nearly 11 inches, but it's amazing girth made is fight like a fish that was even bigger!!!

1/32 ounce jighead, if I remember correctly.  Chartreuse.  Sometimes I was tipping with a little piece of crawler, and sometimes with a green and blackk BPS tripple ripple, with black body and chartreuse tail.

Talk about a goliath that's it. What a great looking fish it looks like a set of lips connected to a blue basketball. Another great fish Bruce, if you don't mind my asking what was your bait of choice for this behemoth.

OH MY WORD! It looks like a torpedo ready to destroy that pond! Excellent specimen! You're too happy playing with those babies Bruce.

Amazing fish, Bruce! I may have to call in a favor from some friends in IL! Tom, how the heck did you fish at Doral? I tried taking a flower petal from the word on 18 and got my butt chewed. Love that course....

Norris Lake, near Peoria, Illinois.

Wow! Where did you catch that?
Comment by Jim Gronaw on July 12, 2010 at 5:49pm
Look at those pecs!!! Wow!

Looks like the ones I was catching in Miami at the Doral.
