John Pavlik had a memorable vacation this summer when he pulled a 10-inch bluegill from Chetek Lake in northern Wisconsin.

“Caught on a small tube jig with a 1/16th-ounce jighead [while] drifting in around 14-15 feet,’’ he emailed. “Last fish of the week before coming home to Tinley Park.’’

He weighed it at 1.08 pounds at the Rod and Gun Shop in Chetek, Wis. and sent a comparison photo of it next to an ordinary bluegill and a Coleman cooler.
