Bluegills and bluegill fishing in Indiana natural lakes

Jed Pearson, Indiana Division of Fish and Wildlife

Bluegills, Lepomis macrochirus, are the most abundant and most important fish in northern Indiana natural lakes. Based on standardized data compiled by the Division of Fish and Wildlife at 197 lakes since the 1980s, bluegills averaged 45% of the number and 15% of the weight of fish collected in 387 fish population surveys. Electrofishing catch rates in June from 219 surveys at 125 lakes averaged 86/15-minutes of sampling…

It Sucks Being Shocked...

If you're a bluegill, that is. I love coming across little bitty  "one-liners" either in articles or research papers that either stand out as being profound, or explain via scientific documentation something generally perceived or accepted in the (bass) fishing world. Kind of like one of those "A-HA" moments. I don't find many of them, but I've come across a pair of studies…

Float Fishing for Panfish - The basics

Welcome aboard B. Waldman. I started this group in hopes we can better understand our electronics so that we know there full potential. Our electronics can do so mush more than we know I'm hoping with this group we can better understand them and how to make any adjustment to do so. We have come a long way since the LED flasher and with the improvement there is a learning curve. Hopefully we can learn all we need to know and starting it up and setting it up will be become 2nd nature.
