No pictures, but I've been slamming the 8/9 inch bluegills for a week now, and we all know which fish you'd rather eat. A 2 lb. bass, a 40+ lb. king, or a 8 inch bluegill. I choose the gills! :thumbsup: Don't think I'm not jealous though. I'd love to be in Alaska right now fighting those Salmon :pissed: Nice fish guys! The best part of spring fishing is seeing those fully plummed Ducks in all their breeding colors. Had a hen and drake Bluewing Teal take a few fly-by's while I was out in the boat yesterday. Looks like fishing will be on hold for a while here, because a cold front moved in yesterday while I was fishing. I got drenched by the rain and to top it all off, while I was pulling my boat on the trailer I slipped off the walkway on the trailer and fell off and the momentum of the boet knocked me off my feet and I fell in up to my neck. :toofunny: Of course I immediately looked around to make sure no one saw me make an ass of myself, but unfortunately there was a fella looking right at me. At first he asked if I needed a hand, and when I replied no, (speaking as loud as I could with my testis about frozen off) he proceeded to give a nice chuckle. All in all it was pretty funny. Of course my cell phone and wallet was in my pocket! :laughing: That's fishing! Pete

Swamp Puppy,
You're exactly right Gills are the most fightenist fish there is. If they made a ten pound Bluegill you'd need 20 pound test and a support belt to bring one in. I heard that the Dorado is pretty tough to bring in because they are all fin like the Bluegill. Forgot to mention that Monday we (ten of us) went after trophy Walleye off a Lake Winebago river system (Wolf River). Caught two keepers, a 28 and 1/2 and a 31 incher. 11 and 12 pounds. Got on Lake link and there was a 16 and 1/2 pound Walleye caught that night 36 and 1/2 inches. Also caught that night a 54 inch 40 pound Musky as well. I caught about 20 Walleyes, with the biggest being 26 inches. 14 straight hours of casting can take it's toll. I felt pretty old after that one. Nice fish all! :thumbsup: Pete
