Dinner Plates

On of the farm ponds near my home hold really big bluegills. Every now and then the conditions are right and I am able to hook into some of them. Tonight was no exception. Some of the bluegills that I caught could be described as dinner plates. The were taking small calftail streamers and putting up spectacular fights on the 6' 6" 3 weight. I stayed well past dark, also catching a few small bass and crappies. But it was those big bull bluegills that had me jumping up and down.


  1. Very nice. I plan on fishing for some sunnies, and bluegills very soon.

    1. Thank you. I'm sure you will have a good time with them.

    Nothing like landing super size bull bluegills on the fly rod. I suspect these fish were spawning. Did you try a popper, I figure they would have nail it as well as your streamer? Thanks for sharing

  3. Those dinner plates are colorful. Nice catches and fun.
    Tie, fish, write and photo on...
