    What part of Southern Indiana Bo? I might be able to meet up someday. I have too many things going on right now to meet up soon, but maybe once I get stuff done we could.

    Bo I'm two hrs away. I might have to put off some stuff and see if I can't catch a 3lb'er. Evansville is half way between my daughter and I. I can fish and then have her meet me there. Kill two birds with one stone. She went to UE and USI the last two years and she has friends there.
    I'll see what I can do.

    Way to go Bo, that's a load of gills. I've probably had days of like 60 or 70 fish, but never over a 100. And a 3lber, man you were just a few ounces off the state record. If you ever break that record, you better let us all know.

    Bo, that is one BIG gill ,I have been doing Taxidermy for 21 years .
    I have never seen one that big. Hope you have some pic of him.
    I have done some 2 and 2 1/4 lb 'ers they are big. I had the highest
    scoring fish in World taxidermy competition in the amateur division.
    I used two bluegills for it. That was 8 or 9 years, ago they are fun to do.:tounge_out:

    Wow! Thats alot of bait. I have a pond like that by my house where I go catch all my bait for the river. All I have to do is through my net out once and I have all of the bait you need.
