Rough Week

Last week I lost my life time fishing partner and friend, my father, after a long but brave battle with pancreatic cancer, and just yesterday I lost my awesome Navy Veteran grandfather on my mothers side, also after a brave battle with cancer. Such a rough week, I need to go fishing.

Next time you BBG Friends go out, catch some fish for a couple of fallen brethren. Thank you guys.

Texas River Bum Double Haul Master's Tournament.

Last weekend was the TRB Master's tournament that me and a buddy of mine made it into. Woke up at 5 to be at the pre tournament briefing and to pick out our boats and the stretch of water we fished. Me and my buddy had the same stretch of water at the South Llano river state park. We make it there and get on the water around 8:30. A cold front rolled in the night before, and by the time we made it to the water it was about 44 degrees with 15 mph winds. The odds were definitely not in our…

April has been good.

It's only mid April, but it's been good so far. My girlfriend got me a fishing kayak for my birthday!!!!! And i also received some flies from Tooty and another fella I bought a paddle from. My Mom also got me some as well, from a husband and wife company called J&M Flies, and yesterday I received an envelope with some flies from Carl Hendrix which i can't wait to try out. I like to call all of these flies my "birthday flies" . The day after my birthday, I went back home to Houston with…

Welcome Chris to This is a site with loads of information where we can learn and enjoy in doing so. We have Forums that are interesting in themselves. Feel free to read the forums they are loaded with information and above all don't be afraid to jump in and participate we are all learning we can never learn enough and what to continue in our learning process, maybe you have that little extra something that we can put in our bag of tricks to make us even a little better fisherman/fisherwoman. On this site there is lots of information which we can use to fine tune our fishing skills maybe helping us in our pursuit of catching that special little fish we call blue gill which encompasses redears and pumpkinseeds. We also have interesting bits of wisdom on perch and crappies and the list goes on, cause we all love to catch fish or we probably wouldn't be here now.
We also have Blogs again loaded with information. This site is all about catching bluegills and we do that with some success but what we really want is that ultimate giant for bragging rights and you'll see there are some big gills caught. 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. We also have some of the best photo's on the net here for us to look at put in by our members here at BBG. We have a 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 I won't tell soul.
We also have a Chat Room which in my opinion is very underused, but you must be log in to access it. So by all means log in and use It, you will meet some interesting and great people there who knows you may even catch me there. Enjoy, have fun but above all be safe in doing so and GOOD FISHIN..
