This reproduction mount was cast from the original mold I made of the old 1995 Lake Perris record Bluegill. The fish was an even 3 lbs and it beat the old lake record by 1 ounce. ( I believe it now stands at 3lbs. 5 oz.) Though the fisherman's mount was painted to look like the live Lake Perris Florida strain Bluegill, which are pretty dark in color, this fish pictured below was airbrushed to look more like a "Northern" Bluegill. The fish was over 3 inches thick. One of these days the current record will be broken by a member of JigCraft.com. Wonder who?
