    IN THE BEGINNING - THERE WERE BLUEGILLS


    Few fish are as iconic to such a vast group of fishermen as the simple Bluegill. Young and old alike can relate to a common bond, which at one point in their life, created a feeling of excitement that fishing creates course through their veins. And most often than not the first source of that excitement was in pursuit of a Bluegill. They are the beginner's fish, as well as the veteran's fish. They are the quarry of bait fishermen as well as fly fishermen. They can be caught most any time of the day, with any type of gear, and seldom ever leave us wanting. They are all of these things, rolled up into a palm-sized fish with a blue-tipped gill plate that brings far more smiles than any other.

    The Blue Gill was my first fish as a kid. I still remember my dad taking me and of course me taking my kids and now my grand kids but, I have never really had a fasination with them as a food fish or to really target them. Where I lived, they were basically a trash fish.

    Great read! Love those Bluegill. My own history of fishing in a small park lake in Lafayette, Louisiana began this same way. It never ends, just returns in larger circles.
