  Fished Sat morning & started with two bait casting rods and two fly rods. As soon as I was in the kayak I flipped a popping bug to an opening in the grass and landed an enormous bluegill that exploded on the popper.I had come hoping to catch a few of the large bluegill Steve had found in this lake.

I ended up catching my personal best bluegill weighing 1.51 lbs a little later. I mostly stayed after the bluegill and caught 40 huge fish on popping bugs and woolly buggers. I weighed three others at 1.31, 1.26 and 1.18 lbs.The rest were the same size as these or only a tad smaller.I have never caught so many quality bluegill and likely never will again.

Caught only eight bass but I did not spend much time after them.The water was clear and full.
