Eyes Bigger than its Mouth
Imagine my fishing buddies surprise when he retrieved a trolling lure that wasn't tracking straight to find this tiny bluegill firmly attached!
Learning that some decent sized perch were holding in a shallow area of a local lake; Paul and I decided to give it a try Saturday morning. The perch were cooperative and a few hours of trolling produced the makings for a few meals of delicious pan fried fish.
The photo-op of the morning occurred when Paul reeled in this hungry bluegill. Keep in mind that the lure pictured here is only 1.5" (38mm) long.
Hopefully this little guy learned a good lesson and will not be trying to eat meals too large for it to handle :)

The picture made me smile. I remember this happening to my son when he was small and just learning to fish. We often laugh about his giant catch!
Salty: That is so funny.
