Sunfish, Bluegill
11.5 inches; 1 lb 2 oz

I went to a local state park lake this morning to see if I could catch any big channel cats. I caught an 8 lber there a couple of weeks ago. I put some red wigglers under a float and cast a rubber worm while waiting for a bite. Bites on the worm were very slow. I did catch about 30 largemouth bass on the rubber worm. Just as I was packing up, I noticed my float moving. It moved a second time and I set the hook hoping for a big cat. The fish fought pretty well so I thought I probably had another bass. I was shocked see that it was a huge bluegill, my personal best! I'm not even disappointed that I caught no catfish.
