Welcome Donna to BigBlueGill. This is a site with loads of information where we can learn and enjoy in doing so. In this site we have loads of information we can feed off of. We have FORUMS, BLOGS, CHAT ROOM, SPECALTY GROUPS, VIDEO'S, and the best PHOTOES you can find anywhere on the internet. Feel free to jump in and investigate the site it is loaded with information and above all don't be afraid to participate we are all learning and improving our own skills and enjoying while learning. What you add my be that little extra something that we can put in our own little bag of tricks something we can use to make us better fisherman/fisherwoman ourselves.

We are all about Bluegill, Big Bluegills ( Bluegills, Sunfishes, Red Ears, Brim family) but not to stop there you will read about many different species of fish in the blog and forums but our main goal is catching that ultimate giant Gill so we can meat that goal and maybe catch that giant along with some braggin rights. Its just a good well rounded site with loads of information with good people who don't mind sharing, we have loads of fun doing so which you will see.

Our video section that will keep your blood pumping and make you want to be fishing on that special lake or river fishing your heart out. (TAKE A KID FISHING) such a great high. Above all we want you to enjoy yourself don't be afraid to share some of your fishing experiences with us we would love to hear about them please don't be afraid to share your exact lakes with me with all GPS coordinates and the exact baits you used it will be my little secret.

Be aware of our Chat Room which in my opinion is very under utilized but you must be log in to correspond on it. So by all means log in and use It you will meet some interesting and great people there. Enjoy have fun but above all always stay safe. GOOD FISHIN..
