my favorite bluegill pond just had a nice hatch of some BWO-type mayflies (don't know exact names, I'm no entomologist), but I can tell you, casting a size 16 BWO parachute to rising bluegill is a hell of a lot more fun way to work on casting accuracy than casting a piece of yarn to a paper plate. plus, you can't argue with 52 fish in just over two and a half hours...

There is nothing that fights like a bluegill and for eating they are tops. I saw this post earlier and decided today that i was in the mood for some panfried bluegils so off i went to presque isle and caught a dozen, that means tommorrow fish dinner. I tyed up some lighting bugs and they are awesome for panfish. I found the pattern on tri-county fly fishers its a club in central florida and the lighting bug is Ed Russell creation

I took my my little brother fishing at the 'gill pond in Raccoon creek state park a few years ago and and in a couple of hours we had over 30 of them landed. It peaked his interest now I'm trying to hook him a little more. We caught them all on a carpenter ant pattern. They crushed it as soon as it hit the water every time.

Count me in. My choice of fly is whatever I have tied on at the moment They'll eat anything, or at least try to. Last Thurs. while fishing for bass, I had one hit a 1/0 floating minnow, twice. The second time he hooked himself in the gill plate. He measured a whole 3". Heck, the fly was bigger than he was.

I sometimes carry a 3wt rod with me when fishing in the kayak just for panfish. When the bass are moody and the carp are spooky, 'gills will be gracious enough to show me a fun time.

Here's a pumpkinseed from last summer
