Scary Day on the water!

Got a late start Saturday morning.  Couldn't wait to get the kids out on the water.  They were as ready as I was.  Dropped the boat about 8:30 but it would not start.  I went twice last week and no issues but it just would not start.  Dropped the trolling motor and went on out to a couple of close spots so we could get some lines in the water.  Got about 6 lines out and started slow trolling a cove.  No takers so I decided to head out to a little deeper water and attempt to start the boat…

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.
