    I was at Lake Pleasant on Sunday with my brother taking the kids out to catch bluegills, catfish, and a little swimming..

    Check out this bluegill my brother caught on a ball of night crawlers in about 20 feet of water...
    * I think it is a blue gill, or at least a bluegill on steroids...

    ~ I have never seen a gill that big before... I wanted to use it for bait, but he wanted to let it go so he can get the AZ catch and release state record.
