This gill was a standard golf course fish, but it had a really strong purple glow, more so than the picture would show.
The first one was caught on a jig and worm. Bite was extremely light.
This second one (sorry for the poor timer shot) was caught on a TOPWATER. Which is just weird, but I thought "What the heck?" after I saw a huge splash.
I also just noticed that both fish had a similar notch in the tail, a coincidence but not that strange, since they're the same species and probably have similar behavior/experiences.
I know some readers think these are tiny, but its good to finally be on the golf course after a while. Can't wait for some warmer weather to lay a beating on the big ones I know are in there!
