Welcome aboard Donald to the bigbluegill.com. At this site we have lots and lots of information all you have to do is look, learn and enjoy. We have blogs that are interesting in themselves each one loaded with information all we have to do is look at them read them and learn from them. We have forums another tool to spread information on the site either in a question or shared gathered information so don't be afraid to participate, its a learning tool we can all learn something from. If we have knowledge of the subject matter please share so we can learn also, we all want to learn that's why where here. On the site is tons of information for us to fine tune our skills. When we do get to go out and fish we are learning maybe even using some of our new learned skills. Don't be afraid to share your fishing experiences with us we would love to hear about them. We have one of the best photo sections I know of anywhere put in by the members.  There are fish pictures not just bluegills but lots of different species with lots of the quality picture's.  Again it's there for us to use and get lost in all those quality photo's. No site would be complete without a video section and we have a great one with lots of video's to look at. There is so much to see on the site you can't help but to learn something about fishing and that's really why we are here to learn and have fun doing it. Then last of all we have a chat line which is very under utilized but there to use, you must be logged on to participate in any activity other than that it is read only. Enjoy our site and learn so we can become better fisherman and in turn enjoying our sport a little bit more. Have fun with the site and GOODFISHIN..
