Ok, I have been focusing on the fun of the 2014 Bluegill Blitz and haven't posted for a week or so.
Now that the Blitz has come and gone, yesterday was show and tell day on this years Blitz, thought I should post a re-cap for all my readers and followers who were interested.
As I understand it, there were over (30) participants from across the United States, who spent a couple of weeks of the month of May plying their local waters for a Bluegill with a fly rod. Simply, the largest fish, length wise would be declared "Master Bluegill Fly Angler" for 2014. All for fun and giggles mostly, but hey, it was the first year of the Blitz. So, perhaps, bigger and better things to come.
Anyway, Brandon Bailes, has been announced as this years winner of the 2014 Bluegill Blitz. Just want to say congratulations to Brandon for his Bluegill. Here is a picture of Brandon catching something other than a Bluegill.
I am a brave soul so I won't keep you wandering any longer about the fish I entered.
I think my buddy, Greg McBill, caught it a bit later on. The benefits of Catch and Release!
Bill Trussell's effort to catch some big Bluegill on his annual quest, well, Bill was a participant in the Blitz and did well for himself.
Here are Bill's fish entry's for the 2014 Bluegill Blitz.
Ok, Bill, can catch a Bluegill and does on a regular basis. Wish he would share but I would have to travel to Alabama to catch Bluegill like this one. Great Bluegill, Bill, although it wasn't the longest, it was one I will surely remember.
I am already looking forward to the 2015 Bluegill Blitz. Have fun Bluegill anglers.
