Remember takin a kid fishing is going to be one of the most memorable things they will ever do. Especially for the ones that never get to do it. Ridding in a boat or fishing from the bank its awsume.
The most important thing to remember and remind them is not to make this a competition. You can teach a kid the basics of how to fish in a day. If they like it and wanna go back anybody can learn to compete with enough time on the water! This AINT the most important lesson. Its not why… Continue

OK, today I went ice fishing for the first time in about 20 years.
I have had this fear of falling threw ice since the last time I fell in. I was in my late teens, it was about 4 degrees out and I fell into a lake we were riding our motorcycles and snowmobiles on. The lake had an aerator that did not allow the ice to freeze as thick in certain places. When I fell in, I was up to my neck and it was very hard to get myself out. However I did get out before my friends got back to me. I got on… Continue

I have seen ads that tout Birchwood WI as the "Bluegill Capital of the World" ! !
Any truth to that? I am thinking about maybe taking my bride up there this summer for a few days. Would sure like to hear about where to stay and which lake is real good! OR, tell me about any other bluegill "hotspots" that are in the midwest... Thanks..... John

Well, I finally got to do a little ice fishing for some big yellow perch out in western Maryland at Deep Creek Lake. I stayed with my friend Ron and we fished 2 1/2 days on the lake and were joined the last half-day with our buddy Dan. I wish I could tell you that we murdered them, but the truth is that we worked very hard for a total of 58 yellow perch and one walleye during that time frame.
As of Jan 1, 2010, the Maryland DNR has imposed a 10 perch daily limit… Continue

Due to new fishing regulations in Canada, we are looking for a new lake for our yearly fishing trip in June. We are use to smaller lakes, 2000 acres and under that provides good bluegill fishing. We would like to visit Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri or Arkansas. Can anyone offer recommendations for lake and possibly cabin rentals.

In order of visits, by state...
The second number is average pages/visit
The third number is average time spend on BBG
Followed by % new visits
Followed finally by percent of people who immediately jump off of site
For what it's worth, the average time spent on this site (7-10 minutes) is OFF THE CHARTS for a site like this. That's really cool.

Hey y'all, got to fish the warmwater discharge at Brunner Island today on the Susquehanna River in PA. Good wading conditions, low water, clear, but tough fishing. Cold this early AM- 12 F with some wind.
Ran into one guy who got 6 smallmouths from 13 to 17 inches on 1/8 th oz jigs. I got my first fish of the year...a 18 inch channel cat on a Zoom Fat Albert on a 3/16 th oz jig. Also got yet another cat on the jig and a nice 16 inch smallie on the same. Missed about 6 or 8 strikes.… Continue

A couple average size ones.
My 10", second master angler of 2010 for me.
Buddies 9 1/2"

I spent the afternoon with a good buddy on a farm pond that is open to the public. This specific pond is chock full of big shouldered bluegills. The color of the gills in this chain of farm ponds is plain awesome, they tend to put up a good fight too.
In the couple hours we were there we iced about 20-25 gills a piece. Most in the 8-9" range, along with some smaller ones.
Most fish were coming from green tear drops tipped with a wax worm, most fish took the jig just after… Continue
