Average number per trip?

(1/2) > >>

LotsToLearn:
Im somewhat new to bluegill specific fishing, and am curious about the average amount that yaíll will catch on any given day. At my spot, i can average about 40+ in 3 hours. Not much size. What is a good average day for you?

RyanW:
Usually none to few. Iím not really a numbers guy though, I look for size. As for average, on any given day.......maybe a dozen in the 2-3 hours Iím out. Usually during non-peak feeding windows on heavily pressured smaller waters. When the bites on itís a different story though. Definitely more slow days than fast days. Pretty much comes down to how much I want to move around and find them. Sometimes itís nice to just get on the ice for a minute.

Unclegillhunter:
Not sure. Once I count the six or eight for a meal I donít really count the ones that go back down the hole.
Keep it safe! JDL

hard to put a solid number on it, but my good days usually number around 50-100 fish per day (right lake, right location, right conditions).

this year has been tough though. my go-to lake has been heavily pressured to the point that the gills are extremely scattered and spooky, my backup lake got drawn too far down for irrigation last summer and is now about 2 feet deep (100% winterkill is probable), and third best option is snowed in, no access. the bluegills i've managed to catch have been few and far between, though the size hasn't been too bad (averaging 8 inches). this is the first year that i've caught more largemouth through the ice than bluegills.
