Comment: Is it true that if there are more bass in a pond that there are less bluegill... I heard that from my dad but I don't understand how this could be

Comment: I've always been primarily a bass and catfish angler, fishing for sunfish as flathead cat bait. But lately I've become a real fan of catching these little bruisers on my 5/6weight fly rod. What fun! Now they rank up there as highly as the bass and catfish species as far as I'm concerned.

Comment: I think a Bluegill was my first fish also . Alot of private pond and lake owners stock them as forage for their Bass and Catfish in the south . In the early seventies my dad put me in the front of the boat with a flyrod and I caught several that two hands barely landed them . I've seen a few caught by some other folks even bigger . Rubber body and legged flies , small spinners and plugs , worms , crickets , bread and even weenies wii catch 'em . Canepole to fancy ultra lights , any one can pull 'em in

Comment: Great fish to get kids interested in fishing. I got my son started years ago by finding a bed at Lake Purdy and giving him an ultra light set up with a red worm. He's been ruined ever since (and that's fine since he's old enough to drive me to the water now.)

Comment: The Bluegill has a greatly compressed, roundish (in profile) body that is typical of the sunfishes. Its color is highly variable and many range from dark blue or bluish-purple to yellow, and in some cases (notably in quarry holes) it may even appear to be clear or colorless. Usually, there are 6-8 vertical bars on the sides, which may or may not be prominent. The gill cover (operculum) peaks into a broad, roundish flap that is black in color; however, it is not surrounded by a lighter colored trim as it is in some other sunfishes. It has the small mouth and head that are typical of sunfish species. The pectoral fins are pointed. Fly fishing for bluegills has become increasingly popular and light tackle anglers have long found it to be one of the best action fish, ounce for ounce, that can be caught.

Comment: I love Bluegills. I believe that it was the first species I ever caught, and now my eldest daughter can say the same. I like their taste, but most of all, I love that they fight SO hard! Pound-for-pound, I'd bet that this is the hardest fighting species in fresh water!
