Gentlemen, this may be the largest female bluegill I've ever pulled from the pond, using a fly rod. Any guest-imates as to the weight?

How long is the fish ??? If it is 13 inches,it will weigh about 1 1/2 lbs to 1 3/4 lbs.

If it is 14 inches, Tom has it about right at 2 1/2 lbs

Helluva gill,sir :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Callaway Gardens ain't got nothin' on Loch Geezer!
We used to catch them like this out of the pond out back until the local-yokels decided there ain't no such thing as private property when good eating fish are concerned.
After a couple years of them filling their buckets with 'keepers' they had the nerve to ask Bear Spray the other day what happened to all the big fish!

Thanks for the endorsement, Jack-O. About the pond poachers: I've been toying with the idea of a start-up business, 'Gators R Us. I'd get some paying clients, go see a cousin in south Florida, and bring back a few 4 to 5-footers to place in the clients' ponds for the season. Of course I'd have to return the saurians to FL before the weather got cold here. My guess is when Billy-Bob and Rastus saw one of my rent-a-gators come up on the bank to eat the hooked fish, the 'private property' would be as the name implies. The franchise possibilities boggle the mind...mine, anyway.
