It was on the very first day of summer that I would almost break the Texas state bluegill record at 2.02 pounds.
Is it a bass? No it’s a bluegill!
My dad and I had been fishing for about and hour and a half until finally he pulled up a bass. I picked up his rod to test it out. On the very first cast… I had a fish! I thought it was about a 3-pound bass, but when I flipped it into the boat I realized it was the biggest bluegill I had seen in my life! It weighed 2 pounds on the dot. So close to that state record bluegill!
