Do you love big bluegill?
Alright I'm in a somewhat unique situation over here in the midwest but I hope there's a solution. My favorite bass (yes tony i said it) lake is filled with bluegill from tiny to very big. It is gin…Continue

So this is probably the last thing you would expect me to ask after the picture many of you guys saw yesterday, but how do you catch spawning rockies? Smallie fishing has pretty much come to an end…Continue

My unlikely, two part fish story came this winter when I was looking for somewhere to fish. This winter was particularly difficult because here in Northern Illinois we only had safe ice for a week or…Continue

I just got in to bass fishing a few years ago but I have tried just about every type of bait there is. I know far less than most people on this site, but I think I may have something to say here.…Continue

I got to fish my favorite lake today. Last year thanksgiving week was all big gills, maybe a few redears in a day and a small bass every 20-30 fish.

This theme continued for the rest of the day with 10 gills, 7 crappie (a bunch lost), 4 bass, and 3 redear, including a monster. Got some pictures and a great video of my dad catching a nice bass on an ultralight…Continue

Just put three fish in my 30 gallon aquarium (after giving away the one giant goldfish I was keeping in there.) They are a 7.5" pumpkinseed, 7" bluegill, and 6.5" bluegill. (Somebody cancelled on our fish fry so three of the littlest ones got lucky.) I have renovated the tank by putting in a new big filter, I check and adjust the PH very frequently, remove toxins such as ammonia and chlorine, and feed them redworms from my worm farm. I am adding a heavy duty air pump as soon as I can get one…Continue

I cast out a small mini-mite attempting to catch some bluegill and perch. On the first cast a 6" perch grabs it. As I was bringing him in something just started taking drag like crazy. I kid you not a 20+ pound channel cat goes to the surface and spits the perch out. But the fun wasn't finished. Within seconds two more bass are looking at the perch. One nice one eats it and I pull back hard to let my dad throw the plastic worm to them but I had hooked the stupid green carp. So after going…Continue
