My name is Randel Pringle- when it comes to fishing bluegills are my first love,i have          cought dozens of 11 inch blue gills in my life.  " I started fishing in earnest in 1970 or so"   [ ] The real problem seams to be i can not catch my 12 inch or bigger bluegill, let me assure all who read this lt is not for lack of trying.  I fish em in the summer, fall,winter and spring time.  Since ice on this winter 2013 i have caught two 11 inch bluegills-Fifteen or so 10 inches up too the two 11 inch ones-Another 20 or so that were 8 inches-too 10 inch, including one 10 inch last night and a 9 inch.  The other twenty or so gills that i have caught this winter were well there is no size limit were i live and with the last name Pringle i like chips even bluegill chips.  I fillet and skin all my gills i have been known to catch my limit of gills two and three inches long-fifty fillet per limit,after two or three limits we eat chips gill chips.  In fact this coming week end Saterday 2/23/2013 i am throwing my second fish fry this winter, i have twenty three people to feed i supply the fish.  To back up just a bit i caught my 11.25 inch gill this summer drifting in twenty five of water he was a real hog i have a picture when i learn how to put it on here i will, i thought this was my 12 incher i was wrong, i also caught another 11 inch gill last spring, in this same lake.  I will try to shut up now since its clear my passion for gill fishin probably sounds like a fake out ha ha, go get em.

This is a site with loads of information where we can learn and enjoy in what we like doing best, fishing. In this site we have loads of information we can feed off of and share and learn and having a good time doing so. We have FORUMS, BLOGS, CHAT ROOM, SPECIAL 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 still in the learning process and improving and honing our skills making us better fishermen/fisherwoman and enjoying it all throughout the process.

What you personally may 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 fisher people 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 even some you may not have known even existed in the Blue Gill world and forums with many picture to share, but our main goal is catching that ultimate giant Gill so we can meet that special goal and maybe some braggin rights along the way. Its just a good well rounded site with loads of information with good people a family atmosphere 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 AND DADS 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 our little secret.

We have the best Photo's on the web some being so good you will be in aw and they are so addictive you'll keep coming back for more, there is truly some beautiful stuff there posted for our BBG family. We all love to share and share we do with some breath taking photo's. It will take you hours to see then all and you'll enjoy every minute of it..

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..
