Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

As many of you know, I was fortunate to be part of a group of like minded souls who spent some time in Bruce's company this past weekend. I've known Bruce for a little while now, but this was my first chance to interact with him on a more extended, personal level.

Bruce opened his home, as well as his personal water,  to myself and everyone else who attended. Those of you who have been members of BBG for some time are already aware of his generosity and compassion, but rest assured that it transcends and encompasses far more than what we experience on the pages of this site. I believe it is truly boundless.

And yes, I managed to catch a fish or two. And while I realize that photos are a big part of who, and what we are here at BBG, the simple truth is what I saw and experienced cannot be done adequate justice by any photographic effort. The real message would be lost in a sea of pixels.

My friends, I'm asking all of you to please do something for me. Look around the site here at BBG.....think about what it means to you, about what you've learned from being here, what we've shared, what we've experienced  together.....then, think about who makes it all possible....one guy. Bruce.

Please, if you enjoy BBG, post a reply to Bruce in this thread and let him know it. It doesn't matter if it's a paragraph, a sentence, or just one word.........thanks.

"Fishhook" - love it!
Dilly... Good to hear from you!

I have mentioned to Bruce in a couple of emails how much I enjoyed this ad-free site for all who enjoy the lowly bluegill.  Once again Bruce, thank you

Bruce,.....Thank you for this outstanding artery to the bluegill world.....your efforts have clearly created a network of unique individuals, and elite anglers from across the nation with a serious love for this game.....what we all share here expands us all to an unmeasurable degree, and deepens our passion for this remarkable fish.
