I'll be so Blue Just Thinking About You! Fish Numebr 6 Bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus)

This might not seem like a milestone fish, but we are supposed to catch every species of freshwater fish in the state.

We caught this little kibbee while fishing the Bellamy for Crappie, using the same methods,  a tiny jig tipped with a waxworm. This little sunfish is probably the most popular fish to target when fishing with kids and a fun fish to catch a really light tackle through the ice.

A Bluegill can be easily identified by the black flap on their gills

Maybe if I hold it over the icehole it will look more impressive...
The NH state record for Bluegill is 2 lbs. 0.64 oz. this fish is a far cry from that record.

Stay tuned to see how we ate this little fish!
