I would assume there are bigger ones in there...but many lakes will get stunted with small panfish. I live on a lake that has a ton of them. Right now, the smaller ones are in the shallow, while some bigger ones are in deeper water, 8-15 feet. The bigger ones do seem to move towards the surface in the evening. I use a small bass popper at times to keep the little guys off the hook, but they still hit it, just hooked less often, also, if they pull it under, it usually floats back up.

You may need to go below the surface if you are after the bigger fish. Its not as fun, but sometimes its necessary. Don't hesitate to keep any of the Bluegills you catch...they need to be thinned out.
