Managing big bluegill



Bull Bluegill a rare breed indeed!

By Mike Pehanich

Literally. It wasnt but just a couple years ago and I was changing their diapers and rocking them to sleep. Now I am baiting their hooks, removing their fish, snapping tons of photos, and just having a great time fishing and exploring the outdoors with these gals!

i just sent you an email but id also like to know how much you'd make me pay for a gill if i were to buy one from you.
At 5:01pm on February 8, 2010, Dale Fortin said…
