Up north we call the panfish with the dark coloring around the gills a bluegill. I the south they call it a brim, spelled bream. I going to start calling it a brim….gotta blend.
Took my first brim out of Lofton Creek the other day. I tossed the little fella back as I usually do but they do make a wonderful fish fry if you catch enough of them.
I love fishing. I enjoy catching too but I always tell people that I fish because I like where they live.
