Thanks,for the welcome. I've bream fished all my life n and now have 48 acres of land with my own 1 1/4 acre pond on it.  It's time to learn all about ponds and how to raise some healthy fish.

Hey Dick thanks for the kind welcome to Big Bluegill. Living in NJ I dont see many gills  over 6 or 7 inches so I enjoy seeing what a big Gill looks like and how much fun it is to fish for them. I still enjoy a few hours in pursuit of these great little fighters. Especially now that I have taught myself to  use a fly rod. thanks again for the welcome. John "the iceman" DiCosmo

Thank Larry

Dick,

Thanks for the reply. I have been an inactive member for a long time and glad to be back to the site. Was just looking for comments on whether the crappie are schooling up this fall around bridges, etc. in the Baltimore area reservoirs / rivers.

Thanks Greg and Leo

OK Greg and Leo you got me started with the float tubes. I need any info on fishing float tubes cause I have never used one before I think you gathered that though. I'm a fairly large person no large person with one back surgery under my belt so I would like something comfortable with great back support. Any help would be appreciated back support being the main emphasis.

Do you have a favorite weed

I have a personal best as far as weeds are concerned. Curly Leaf Pond Weed is a fish magnet for me and I have a hard time passing a clump without fishing it. The lakes I fish in Michigan are loaded with them. You may see a single green stalk in 10' or 15' of water depending on water clarity or maybe a ¼ acre or more of them bunched together. They tend to grow deeper than a lot of lake weeds do…

Fly fishing

Looking around in the barn and found that fly rod that I didn't know I had. I was going to go to Bass pro and get a new fly rod so that I could learn how to use one. Lucky for me I went to the pole barn first. I don't know a thing about it but hope it will be good for gills and sunfish. It's a Gander Mountain Guide Series. I tried to look it up and found no info so i'm thinking it must be discontinued. Its a Gander Mountain Guide Series- Plateau PL9044 9' line wt 4. If anyone can tell me if…
