"A couple from just before sundown from my 1/10th acre sediment pond where I am trying to get some recruitment. These are likely some adult size breeders I put in last year about this time. Good to know they are still there."

"Not a lot of activity in this group. That is a whopper of a Redear, or at least it would be to me. I have them in my pond but the largest I have caught has been a little over 10". Would like to catch one out of my ponds that size some day."

Notes from a Nebraska bluegill derelict.

Something came in the mail a couple days ago...

At first I thought maybe it was from my M.D.  He's been pushing me to eat better, and as you can see there were some pretty good items here.  But then I realized it was from my BBG buddies.

Christmas Bluegill Wishes

I would like to extend a sincere and heartfelt gratitude to all of the members of BigBluegill.com.

I know I've been lacking in posts and pictures lately, but the demands of my family and my business render me an observer most of the time.  I read every post and enjoy every picture.  Every big bluegill caught feels like I landed it myself.

I hope that all of you have an amazing Christmas, and a great new year.  2016 will surely be full of great catches, great…

Mr Bruce, been awhile since we've communicated so though I'd just say have a good spring and better summer.

Please don't re-post with the names reversed........Bob-O

Oh if the folks here only knew our history, there would be many chuckles.
