"Hey John, I gotta catch up with what's going on in your pond.  My shellcracker pond is 2 & 1/2 yr old, dug in Aug 2015.  The aquarium RES were so tame that when I'd guide 'em into deeper water, they'd just swim back…"

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. 

First of all there were saltine crackers. …

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.
