Fishing from Kayaks and Canoes New Topic Printer Friendly Version

  about 41 yrs. ago ....

...... by chance caught the largest Bluegill ever .

Also it was the very 1st time I ever fished the Shenandoah , it was even the very 1st fish I ever caught from the Shen. .

That's a triple header ...

This Bluegill came out of the Shen. at Thunderbird (before any houses were built there and the road to the river could swallow a truck whole in it's ruts) , just outside Front Royal , VA.

It's body would have covered a note book size piece of paper , an orange chest so wide (like the width of my heel - #12's) ... caught it from shore just before I stepped into the Shenandoah for the very 1st time to go wading . Returned to that place (camp/wade fishing) about 2-3 times a year for the next 17 yrs. .

No other Bluegill since has even come close ... but so many other great things happened there over those years .
