Juvenile Bluegill

This is one of the first Bluegills I caught here in Lower Alabama while trying out some down-scaled equipment in October.  I was sight fishing with a size 20 hook and artificial bait.  Its home waters are the Styx River, a small, flowing stream with a sandy bottom and it is part of the Perdido River Complex.  I have yet to spend quality time in pursuit of the different micros it holds.  The habitat is much different from the slow moving stained waters of the upper tributaries of the Fish River and Blackwater River I’ve explored.
