Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Hello fellow BBGers!

Ol' Bullworm here. Man o man I have been busy! This is my last semester of college. I will be graduating in December with a BAS in Prototype Engineering and a AAS in Industrial Model Making. That is a mouthful and just the tip of the iceberg. Some of you may remember that my wife and I are expecting our first child in Feburary. Well, we found out that we are having a little girl and I'm so very excited!! So far mama and baby are doing excellent and baby Ellen is perfect in everyway so far!

I would like to share some more news with you. I recently accepted a pro staff position with Micro Spoons and Jigs. MSJ is a husband/wife team of unbelievable plastci bait makers from Louisiana! 99% of the baits they make are designed for bluegill and crappie. Keith and Jessica Pace are amazing folks and are more than happy to pur custom colors for you as well! Here is the link, if you are interested.

Just yesterday, I recieved an email from Frabill Inc. I ws accepted on to their pro-staff as well! This is huge for me, as I truely love ice fishing and feel it is my strongest fishing that I do! My head is still swimming! 

With all this going on I have had to really manage my time, especially with school. I don't want to slack in this last semester. This could be my last weekend of open water fishing. the water temps are in that 43-47 degree area and it won't be long before I have that auger out! 

I hope this update finds you all in good spirits and I will be back soon!

Tightlines!
