I know they are called different things around the states, Bream, Sunnies and so on.
Here in Ohio there three main types:
True Bluegill, Red ear sunfish (the largest) and hybrid Bluegill (there are a few other sub species, but for the most part the above three are it).
Today I was blessed with being able to take my eldery Father wading for Bluegill with our Flyrods. I picked him up @ 0500 this morning. It is a long walk to the area I fish, away from others, and I swear I am the only one who hits this area.
We had to stop a few times on the way so Dad could rest. He isn't able to fish much anymore, with a number of health problems.
We waded out thigh deep and with the first series of cast, my Father landed a nice 10" Gill. It was as if before my eyes I saw 20 years of age fall of him.
We took 40 or so home and I cleaned them for him and my Mother.
Tomorrow I will take my 6yo son to this same area.
This is why I fish.
