PB? Bluegill

Post by pcronin » Mon Jun 03, 2013 8:12 pm

Hello fellas, I've been scoping out the tarpon reports and figured I'd contribute a little rather than just creepin'. I'll be down in the Pinellas area for 10 solid days of fishing starting Friday. Anyways, I went out to shoot some line to help get me thru these final 5 days and tagged into a few bluegill; one of which just might be my pb on the fly. I pulled this guy out of a very high lake (we've had a ton of rain lately). I think I'll go back tomorrow and see if I can't get some for the freezer.

Cheers,

Pete

Wow. Vivid colors. Im nuts but I'd take a day of fly rodding bluegills before any tarpon any day! Did you get him up in Illinois or down here?

Illinois. Fly rodding bass and bluegill up here helps keep me sane up here. I'd much rather fish the salt...
