Unintended Bass

So, I needed a bluegill coz I wanted to drag some cutbait across the lake in my kayak while drifting with the wind. I used my little 4 foot light tackle spinner rod with 4# test line, an itty-bitty panfish hook, and 1/4" of Berkley Gulp night crawler under a bobber. 

Tossed it into about 18" of water under a little spillway and BAM! I mean, it went under immediately. Hungry little bluegill! 

The lower jaw isn't quite grounded on the meter board and the hole on the board behind the bass' tail is the 21 inch mark. All in all, I'd say a good 20.5 inches. Some bluegill. Oh, and it fought like crazy. Love catching stuff like that on a pan-fish rig...

It's a source of great pride for me, that when my name is googled, one finds book titles and not mug shots. Daniel C. Chamberlain
