Couple weeks ago I was fishing for perch to freeze and use for crab bait next year.  It was one of those days that perch just didn't wanna bite. I did get over a dozen bluegill various sizes, most under 5".  I've never tried using bluegill for crab bait but I'll give em a try next year. But I did get one 9" bluegill. I been catching them since I was little guy close to 70 years ago and don't remember ever catching one that big before.  What's the biggest bluegill you've ever caught?

Bluegills are the best in the Hudson River. People have used chicken and bunker right next to me, I would be tearing the crabs up and they would be doing so so. Kind of weird because I went to Maryland and caught 5 keepers over the weekend. Didn't know Maryland crabbers always use chicken. laugh Smiley Smiley
