Do you love big bluegill?
Okay guys and girls...let's do this! There are a lot of great anglers on this site, and for more species than bluegills. And there are people on this site that just seem like 'family'. So...given that, who would you like to fish with, and why? It can be as many folks as you want...and it doesn't JUST have to be about the fishin'!
I'll start it off, and in no particular order. I would like to fish with...
Jeffrey D. Abney...He's from Elizabeth City, NC, my grand parents are from Elizabeth City, NC, and he fishes 8 days a week from one of the premier public bluegill regions on the planet. His food photos look sooo good, his fish photos look good and the NC blackwaters are a classic Dixie trademark.
Tony Livingston..The Hybrid Sunfish King, this man can raise 'em! Plus, he is innovative, thoughtful, funny, considerate and appears to be the perfect gentleman. But I'd be willing to put up with all of that just to spend a few days fishing his ponds.
Derrick Bustle...I like this guy...bluecollar, fishes close to home, catches lots of big bass without all the fancy tournament gear. And...he is from North Carolina, another plus!
Bruce Condello...I've had the great pleasure to fish with this guy and he is an absolute, on-point angler when persuing ANY specie of fish! He may be the only man alive to have caught two, three pound bluegills, in one day! Always seeking to perfect his craft.
Jeffrey D. Abney...Did I mention him? OK, never mind.
John Sheehan...Fishing pressured, local waters in New Jersey is tough, and this guy puts 'em in the boat, year round. I need to sit down with this man an have him show me some licks on the guitar!
Bill 'Musky' Mod...Great angler, expert in the deep/cold water and tough conditions plus it looks like he can really cook! A multi-species man, check out his Road and Snake productions on youtube for giant channel cats and more!
So...get the idea? Who do you want to fish with? And why?
I'll 2nd that .Nicely put Tony!
tony, whem you stop in texas I'll jump on the car and I'll even pay for gas. the rest of the trip sounds awesome
BTW I'd be honored to take any of you guys fishing if you make it down to texas
May I take you up on this? Those huge red ears and red breasts are looking irresistible :)
yep no problem, I'll be fishing Dunlap next week proly wednesday or thursday
and it's home of the big red ear
call me 210 789 1439
Yesss, alright. I'm gonna be having a bunch of company coming through the next couple weeks, so i'm not too sure when i'll be able to make it too far. If you ever fish the San Marcos let me know, i live right down the road from it.
I'd put everybody's name on this forum in a hat and draw one and enjoy a good day fishing with em.
3000+ members on this BBG site. 10 years just to hang with everyone. How about we all gather together in a gigantic picnic at Bruce Condello's/Richmond Mill's lake, enjoy each other company, and create a fishing pressure to the point the fish grow legs and run away..Still a pipe dream.
My father and my older brother - both long deceased.
This would be an no brainier for me. Should the case arise it wouldn't matter who I fished with I just love the sport and my wife will tell you that I could fish a mud puddle and I'd have a smile on my face. I have had offers to fish but do to my circumstances it's really not a simple task. I really guess the best scenario if I could make it happen for me is to be with one of the younger members of BBG who may or may not have lots of fishing experiences in hopes that maybe I could help them in the knowledge department and to watch them catch fish. I really enjoy it when a youngster catches fish that would be icing on the cake. We all start out somewhere and for me in my younger years I guess I was self taught but it was all great and I loved every minute of it. I would like to share what little bite of knowledge I have left in hoping it will be useful and start them on there way to be a successful fisherman. Life really is a precious thing and sharing precious moments in time is everlasting.
Very, very well put, my friend. Bless you and your family and your heart for teaching others how to fish.
