Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Robert Boland just gave me a revelation. Most of y'all don't call bluegills bluegill down south, right? If you're calling them bream, then maybe people in the South U.S. may be searching the internet under "bream" and this site doesn't show up. I think that I'll try to start incorporating the word "bream" into a few more discussions and blogs to try to help this situation. Big bream rock, too! :)

DERN TOOTIN! Folks from the bottom of alabama...We call em bream, stumpknockers, bluegill, shellcrackers, sunperch, panfish, redears, bulls, georgias, coppernose, hybids, stubs, and last but not least...... GOOD EATIN!
I'm surprised,! Lot's of people call them Bream, but those same people often call them Brim as well.
We run into similar confusion when talking to folks around the country about white bass and striped bass/white bass hybrids. In Texas and Oklahoma, white bass are called Sand Bass...or "sandies". Their "Hybrids", we call "Wipers" here. Even here, many weekend anglers call all of these "stripers", even though that name is usually reserved for pure-strain Striped Bass.

I try to use the "correct name", but sometimes even that depends on what part of the nation you happen to be in.

I recall when I was a youngster, and my dad took us fishing for carp. He kept saying, "Look at this bastard!" I knew a bass was a fish, and so I assumed the fish we were catching were actually called "bastards"! My mother quickly cleared up my confusion after she heard ME talking about the fish my dad had threw up on the bank! ;o)
down here bream includes bluegill, shellcracker, sunfish, warmouth etc...
here in south louisiana we call bluegill (bream) and shellcrackers(chink-a-pin) .
CHINK-a PIN!!!! hey what the word for white perch.... White Crappie Black Crappie or just plain ole Crappie. I can say it but I cant even begin to spell it! South louisiana........ Any Oscar close to where you fish?
jermey the word for crappie here in louisiana is(Sac-a-lait )pronounced,(sack a lay). one would be white and the other black Sac-a-lait.



(Sac´a`lait
n. 1. (Zool.) A kind of fresh-water bass; the crappie.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, published 1913 by C. & G. Merriam Co)
haha YEa thats it. I have a good friend with realatives that live in lousiana and they are true blue cajun. Cant speak a word of english. I love being around these guys just to listen to them talk and the cooking.... well as long as theres a ICE cold beer or a tall drink of ice water your gonna be ok. Just pace yourself and the burn will be flavor. Eat to fast and boy its gonna cost you.
yes we have a rich history of (huntin,fishing and cooking) down here,not to mention the cold beer.
i had my own black iron pot and knew how to cook a good sauce by the time i was 12 yrs old,and this is nothing special here,if you are a male over the age of 21 and don't know how to cook a good sauce

Piquante,or a good Étouffée,not to mention squirrel or duck gravy ,well you must not be a cajun.
ima fry some squirrel at lunch today while im makin me and the man child a sandwich and then soak in the crockpot for a couple hours for supper. I cant wait till the crawfish are back in season im soooo ready for some etouffee. Mom has some friends that live over in ummmm.... I think its Homa? They come in when the crawfish come in and we have a smokin good old crawfish boil. Left overs are peeled and put to use in an etouffee dish that he makes us all for lunch and left overs before they head back home.
Down here in Florida theys just called Specks short for Speckled perch
you are correct...and it was something I had to get used to...being a transplant from Michigan where I grew up fishing with my dad we called them bluegill....when I first went fishing with my now hubby here in TN he called them bream, I didn't know what the HECK he was talking about...now I actually call them bream and try to correct myself to say bluegill...LOL
