I've recently REdiscovered the place I caught my very first fish on a hook.

Well, it was a hook, but no Aberdeen. :mrgreen:

My late uncle, during a family reunion, took some skin from a barbecued sausage link and slid it over an uncoiled safety pin.

I dropped it in, and in the well known exclamation often used by one of our local anglers, "BAM!". Fish on!

I caught my first bluegill, and almost (redacted :mrgreen: ) years later plus 30 minutes of aerial map scanning, I FOUND IT! :mrgreen:

Now, all I know is that I pulled out a bluegill years ago, but recently upon relocating the spot, I was pleased to learn that it's that same strain from Conroe; rather, the same species, not necessarily displaced or related to any Conroe fish.

I lifted about 15-20 big Ol' bluegill and bluegill hybrids. Some were green sunfish√óbluegill. Others were red ear crosses and then, just straight up bluegill.

Very fun!! 8) Must remain very secret. Not everyone will put them all back and I don't want to always have to drive to Conroe to go wrestle those tough little boogers. They're a feisty little lot, aren't they!? :mrgreen:
