funny little bluegill

Recommended Posts

so i was fishing today and it was kinda slow and depressing... however the highlight of my day was when i was reeling in a rapala jointed shad rap and as i was reeling it out of  the water this bluegill went and tried to take the shad rap. the funny thing was, all it could get in its mouth was the back hook and i looked at it for a while trying to figure out how that little bluegill thought he was gonna eat a shad that was not remotely close to being small enough to fit in its mouth...  :-?

 Definite case of his eyes being bigger than his stomach (or mouth) :o. Kind of like the little Chickenhawk and Foghorn Leghorn on the Warner Bro's cartoons...

                                       As Ever,

                                        skillet

BTW probably my favorite cartoon character, Foghorn Leghorn ;D

It's not that unusual. This was just posted on a small regional forum that I'm active on, although I don't know what kind it is.

That's the same thing that happened to me a few days ago. I must have ran my pointer right through a school of baby bream, because there was one on 3 of the hooks.  :o

Its pretty amazing when 2,3,or 4 of these crazy fellas are trying to gang up un a super spook knocking it all over the place.Had it happen once.Have caught them on 6.5 inch kut tails with a 4/0 hook. How did that fish ever squeeze that between his jaws??!! He was as long as the bait! But this is also coming from a fish that  is known to eat your spit off the water on occasion LOL.

I love it when a small bluegill can just barely fit the treble hook in its mouth, and then gets all three hooks in his lips... Pain in the butt to get them unhooked when they do that...

I've had it happen too. I caught a tiny bass that was about as long as the spinner I was using.

Also caught one that was only about an inch longer than the senko he tried to eat.

Must be instinct for a tiny fish it happens to me sometimes also.

I have had a small bream attack a crankbait on Smith Mountain Lake.

The crankbait was almost as big as the bream.

Go figure.

In one of my ponds you can routinely catch two incher sunnies on senkos. They get the tail stuffed so deep in their mouths, they can't spit it out. Cute.

well if we realy think about it...  ounce for ounce they are some ferious little fish that will just about attack anything that is put in the water where they are.  >:(  That is unless you are fishing for them then they are no ware to be found  ::)
