Caught this guy today, an even nine inches and already over a pound. When I run the numbers, using a Wr chart for native bluegills, I get a relative weight of 174%. A new record for me.

Nice fish Sparkie! I have never caught a 1 pound BG in a life of fishing. You are making it look routine!

Edit: I am curious. Do you have a harvest plan that you follow?

No Bill, I really don't. Over the past six years, I've probably eaten 7-8 fish out of this pond. I struggle with the eventuality of harvest, where these fish are concerned.

Glad to hear you say that. Nice to know I am not the only one that would really struggle sticking a fillet knife into one of those beauties. I wonder how big they will be next summer and looking forward to the pics! smile

Anyone who disses HBG needs to take a gander at this. Well done, T - that is one of the best conditioned sunfish I've seen to date, from anywhere.

Gorgeous coloration/markings on that fish. I'm color blind, but it appears the fins are edged with a yellow hue. Very nice.

Great Fish!


Tell me about it, I kinda felt the same way. Then again, what do you expect from Maple Syrup raised HBG? Mutant fish - that's what.

AWWWWE not I see it! Great call TJ. It's the syrup. Wild guess here, Spark is caramelizing his fish pellets with that homemade syrup of his and boosting the calorie intake per pellet consumed.

...don't forget about the whispered incantations and wafting incense over the food before it hits the water. These should be called, Hybrid Occult Gills [HOG].

Performed while completely nude....very important.

Feeding HBG is not for the faint of heart.

One from this evening. 9.5" and a tick over 19 ozs. Using the Wr chart intended for BG, gives me a figure of 165% I've measured several fish over 160%, a few over 165, and one over 170% so far this season. Crazy.

It looks as if its skin is about to rip its so fat....

You need to get one of those kasco water circulators and make those things excercise a little.

Sparkie I think we may need a new Rw chart just for your guys! Maybe take the BG chart and multiply the weights by 2! smile
