    I once posted on the BOC about a fish that my son, my buddy and I now refer to as Nessie. She was a giant, i know that for sure...anyhow, long story short. That fish came off a slab bluegill that I thought was too big to get hit....my buddy threw it out and I pretty much laughed at him until he got the fight of a life time...im still looking for that fish!

    I have not caught a flattie on live bluegill yet. Caught a 10 pounder on live bass. This weekend I caught one that was 9 pounds on a bluegill head.
