Richard welcome aboard fishing electronics. I started the group in order to help us understand out electronics and just what they can do for us. After looking into mine I didn't realize how under utilized my finder was mainly because I didn't know it could do all that it does. We have people in the group who know much more than I hoping we can all get together and all take away something out out the group. Our electronics is so sophisticated make you wonder if the fish really have a chance and getting better all the time. Welcome .

 More than happy to be your BBG friend, Richard. Sorry it took a while to respond. I have not been on here as much lately. Been busy with my job, and trying to get my boat ready to fish out of again.

Hey Richard!  Cool, another Bluegill fishing brother!  I am with a small group of guys that regularly fish our local Lake Perris, (near Riverside Ca.) trying for that really big one.  We have all caught Bluegill there of 2 pounds or better, but we are convinced that there are 3 and 4 pounders in the lake, possibly even larger.  Maybe 2014 will be the year!

Hey good fishing, have a nice Christmas-

Jeff Soto

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.
