Sorry to say I missed my quest again this year to land 100 super size bluegills during the spawning period. I ended the quest at 78. I thought I would make it this year but there were other fisherman going after the gills especially when they went on the beds. I landed the majority of my big bluegills really early before they ever went on the beds. I found during the months of March and early April the bigger bluegills are cursing the banks to select areas they are going to fan out for beds. This is a prime time to catch them because no one else is actually fishing for bluegills during this time. Once they go on the beds you better get there early or else you lose out on the best size fish.
is the one place I landed some
monsters this past year early. I did catch some counters on Smith, but the
really bigger bluegills are going to be in lakes that are managed properly to
grow that size fish, and Walker County
really blessed with the big fish. So I would say I was lucky to have landed the
78 I brought to hand and I am going to look forward to next year’s quest. Walker
