Reaching lengths of no longer than 16 inches the bluegill is a sought-after fresh water game fish found in many parts of
North America. Mostly active during the dawn and dusk these fish feed mainly on snails, crayfish, worms and small minnows.
Found in the same family as the largemouth bass the bluegill is fished for both sport and food. These fish are also known to
build nests or beds for eggs and spend a great deal of time guarding it.
