Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

       Hi All,

 

 

 Name is Brian R. Brennan and I am a diehard ultra light lure angler from New Jersey, I Target all kinds of species bluegills are near the top of the list. I have a serious tackle addiction, use G. Loomis rods matched to Daiwa ultra light reels from Japan. I have tried so many other reels that let me down and so the Japanese imports. I mainly fish lures like the Berkley Power grub, Charlie Brewer Slider grub, Bass Pro Shops Spring grub and Stanley Wedge tails. I rig them in either 1/16oz or 1/8oz Lunker City ultra light jigheads. I am also a fan of small crankbaits and minnow baits. To many to list. LOL.

    I fish from a Ranger 619VS multi species boat with a Evinrude 200 Etec H/O. I also have a older model Tracker Pro Guide 16. I got it for free and refurbished it. I live to fish and it makes my job as a police officer easier to handle. I enjoy talking about fishing almost as much as doing it.

 

   I have spent quite a few days lately on a local 50 acre pond that has a huge population of gills, crappie and LM Bass. Today was the best day so far. 101 gills, 8 LM Bass and one crappie. Lures used were power grub in Melon Pepper, Slider grub in Watermelon/Chartreuse, Kalins grub in Arkansas Shiner and a Rapala coundown size 01 in Hot muddler.....Awesome day on the water. All fished released to fight another day.

Welcome to Big Bluegill Brian. Always remember, "boys will have their toys"! Just came back from New Jersey, but never had a chance to fish. Saw a lot of places I would like to try on my next trip. Enjoy yourself and send photos.  
Whats up Brian another Ringwood Boy here .What town are you from in good old N.J?

      Hey Arthur,

 

  I live in Oxford township in Warren County about 5 miles from the Delaware Water Gap. I live 1 mile from the Pequest trout hatchery. We have our own lake and its a fairly nice area for fishing. Plenty of decent lakes and ponds for gills, crappie and LM Bass. Plus the trout streams.
