Thread should be called- 10" bluegill lakes that are now 6" bluegill lakes because I opened my yap. 


Edit: Original poster seems to have come to his senses and deleted his original post asking for info. I still say broadcasting to 1000’s of random people this kind of information will do more harm than good.

Many people catch a 8 inch and think it is a 10 inch.  I  probably catch 2-3 10's a year and not at the same lake. I got a 11" cpl yrs back and gave it to the taxi guy and he sold it to Fleet Farm for display.  I went to a lake last yr for crappies, 100 acres and filled with mill foil, 10 ft deep.  Thought it was a mud hole.  All the crappie I caught were 10" to 14".  Went this year a got a 17" and 15 incher's-unreal.  There are many lakes like this BUT I no longer tell any one where because today there are to many limit takers.  Over the years at Pelican, people knew where the crappie beds where  and you would see the same people taking limits every day (I don't what they did with all those fish).  Crappies at Pelican now are hard to come by. I'll keep enough for a meal for my wife and I and that's it.  To many people, to much pressure, not putting back and taking all they can has changed fishing today.  I'm 82.

Eagle Springs.


Wait, I read the title wrong.  I thought it said "10 per inch bluegill lakes."

10 3/4" bluegill.  The only 10"+ gill I've ever caught.  My dad also caught one over 10" on this same lake.  Everyone who lives in the Madison area knows 10 inch gills are common on two of the lakes - Mendota and Kegonsa.  Waubesa and Monona have 10 inch gills too, although not as many.  This one was caught on Kegonsa and surprised the heck out of me - I thought I had a carp on!

The fish was released after a couple of pictures.  Although I've kept a few fish over 9'' in my life, I prefer to let them go and keep 7-9 inch fish for the pan.

10" bluegill lakes?  Nonsense.  A lake 10" deep would freeze out every winter.

Winnebago, Mississippi River, Wisconsin River, Green Bay and Little Duffy Lake are all 10” Gill producers.

I know a small 20 acre lake just north of hwy 64 where I usually can catch several +10" gills per trip in the winter.  Can't ever find them during summer.  Never kept one and never saw anyone else fish this lake.  Maybe I just keep catching the same ones over and over.

jaybeeturtle, if you look at .Long barrel's post he is looking for 10's not 10"s so you are almost 9' feet short of his required length.......

Nice fish by the way. I have caught many bluegills over 10" in different parts of the state.........

No need to respond .Long Barrels I will be gone hunting for the next week and you will be home complaining about gun hunters or some other gripe you have
