10.0" Bluegill caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Saturday May 04, 2013 at 07:38 near Walled Lake in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a Drop shot #6 hook w redworm a Worm

It has been a long cold winter since I have posted from Michigan. Water temperature is finally rising in the area inland lakes - 60F today (up from 50 F ten days ago).

I only caught three sunfish today - this is first sunfish of year - a 9" pumpkinseed (see my previous post)! For those of you that have followed my posts before you may remember that I start the year trying to catch Master Angler C&R fish. Well, the first pumpkinseed of the year and I am lucky and happy to say that I will be submitting this first fish to the Michigan DNR!

This post is a 10" bluegill, my personal best, and in Michigan the minimum to enter for a Master Angler C&R certificate. My goal this year is to find a 12" bluegill, redear, or pumpkinseed - true trophies here in the North!
