@Joosh So where are the bluegill pictures??? My two favorite fishing memories involve panfish. One was catching bluegills and pumpkinseeds with a cane pole off of a pontoon. The other was catching crappies from a boat with a jig. And I have countless memories of fishing from the dock at one of the houses I lived in as a kid catching mostly pumpkinseeds and largemouth bass.

I have been out several times since my last post, and I just got back from a 4-day all guys fishing trip to Maine. But the school year is about to end, and I am busy as hell. I will soon have lots more time to both fish and post pictures.

They were killing top water frogs out of the lily pads today after work.













She didn’t catch anything but she kept me company.




She did get the absolute crap scared out of her when a painted turtle walked beside her though. That was pretty damn funny.

Still been hitting the topwater off the pads the past few days. Taking the kayak out later at another lake that stocks musky. We’ll see what happens.

So last weekend I was in Maine for my annual fishing trip with 5 of my fishing buddies. The 6 of us rented a cabin on a small pond called Ingham Pond that is connected to a much larger pond called Long Pond (which actually has Upper and Lower sections). We took 3 trucks, each pulling a boat, and left RI around 430 am on Thursday. The fishing was great (mostly smallmouth bass), the beer was cold, and the grill was hot (and usually covered with burgers, hotdogs, or steaks). Everyone is already looking forward to next year's trip, wherever that might be.

The cabin:




The boats on the dock:

@southerncross - Excellent fillet skills! Here's my feeble attempt with some Tataug a few weeks ago.

Was in an annual unofficial tournament yesterday. Finished second in it last year, so I had some high hopes. Right before the start of the tournament, they changed the format. Not sure if I even finished in the top five this year. Still had a good time.

Here's a picture of my fishing buddy Al from last Saturday. It was a rainy dreary day, but he still caught a nice 5+ pound largemouth.

Got another one with top water frog.




Also, what the hell is this Godzilla fish in the pond? Is not a carp. It’s eyes had weird lids / tendril things on top of them.

@Frontier2Xterra I'm trying to figure out that fish. What state was it in? I know you have said that you travel for work.

@Jesse_O Thanks!!! Spotted in Eastern PA. Spring fed pond.

Well, I'm at a loss. The best guess I have is that it is a fish with an eye infection like pop-eye. However, I can't find that pop-eye occurs in the wild. Lots of information on parasites and worms on wild fish, but not much as far as viral infections. I'm thinking that there are two fins along the top of the spine. If that's the case, maybe a saugeye?? That's a cross between a walleye and a sauger. If it's just one fin on top with that sharp V tail fin, maybe it's a sucker or a carp. The longnose dace seems to have a more slender build. The central stoneroller can get up to 6 inches in length from what I have found. The fish in your picture looks bigger than that, plus you called it a "Godzilla fish"!!! LOL!! Anyway, here is a picture chart on the fish of Pennsylvania. At the very least, I had fun researching this!!!

Oh - northern snakeheads are an invasive fish in PA now. They are the only invasive of large size that I found in PA. Your fish is definitely not one, but it is not on the chart.

@Jesse_O thanks!!! Glad you had fun doing that too.

@Frontier2Xterra - My best guess is that it is some type of carp, possibly a grass carp, due to the nares (nostril projections). I saw carp actively breeding in a pond in RI a few weeks ago. So their fins and tails could be torn and/or shredded.

Catch one and solve this mystery!
