This guy way lucky I caught him. He had a large bait hook with 3 inches of line down his esophagus that I got out.
I had 2 more blue gills today.

Blue gills, eh? Are you fishing a lake?


Very good work catching/helping the fish. Nice bow

Nice fish, Pauly.

And he's back out there for another person to catch.

No Lake...East Branch Perkiomen here in Perkasie on the upstream side of the Walnut street bridge.

Now I say blue gill Lepomis macrochirus because Im sure of the Genus Lepomis but not the Species. I'm no expert But the coloring I'm seeing is very similar to that of a blue gill.

With that said it could be a pumpkinseed Lepomis gibbosus as well.

The next time I catch one I'll photo ID it and do more research. I guess after all they deserve their 15 minutes of fame as well.

Additionally, the water is calm in the area they were caught and I'm not sure that blue gill are strictly a lake habitat chordate!

Here is a good example of why they call them a "bluegill"
