Whenever I prepare my gear to go fishing, my cat likes to watch me. Not just because there is line involved, but because my tackle makes little clicking sounds I guess. So I make a fishing pole cat toy for play. He likes fishing too! Check out my short video :) Today, I go for pan fish including Bluegill, Yellow Perch and Crappie.

It’s a long holiday weekend, so get out and enjoy!

If you went fishing as a child and caught your first fish, chances are, that fish was a Bluegill. They are easily caught using a worm on a hook, sinker and bobber. Bluegill are a very common fish in North America, part of the sunfish family. They prefer slow moving waters with plenty of vegetation so that they can hide from larger, quicker predatory fish, like Bass or Pike.

It was fun for me to illustrate the bluegill, because however small they may be, the fish possesses a nice spectrum of colors, much more than just blue.

Do you remember the first fish you caught?
