The bluegill is arguably the most popular freshwater sportfish in North America – it has been introduced into every state but Alaska. Bluegills also have been exported worldwide for sport, for aquaculture, or as forage for larger fishes. Spotte’s book is a synopsis of what we know about bluegills. He discusses not just what bluegills do, but also how they go about doing it.
