Never Underestimate the Power of a Bluegill

Never Underestimate the Power of a Bluegill


After a great week of Mothers day events and enjoying my 6 month old Granddaughter, I unfortunately had to say goodbye to my daughter and granddaughter this morning. Being no good to anybody, including myself afterwards, I headed for water. 


A local lake seemed like the right place. So with my float tube loaded  in CGR in hand, I headed for seclusion. 



Cabelas 7' 6" 6WT , a handful of Mule Deer Divers & Foam Butt Caddis and a spool of 8lb tippet was all that went with me. 



#4 MDD's are a staple for me when hunting light bass. But today, they brought up the biggest of the gills.






This guy earned my respect, crushing a brand new Foam Butt Caddis and fighting like a 3lb largemouth


While I cannot say I miss them any less......there are few things better than the simplicity of bluegills and poppers to take ones mind to a better place.
