Do you love big bluegill?
Today I was out at the local pond doing some fly fishing, when I saw the Osprey that hangs out in the area came to join me. It was truly an amazing sight watching it glide over pond searching for it's prey. As I was watching it I started noticing fish boiling up whenever the Osprey's shadow passed over em. It was amazing to see these fish running, especially because alot of em were in spots I never would have guessed held fish at all! Eventually the Osprey caught a fish of it's own and left…Continue

I would like to congratulate and thank Jim Gronaw for sharing his recent Carp fishing exploits with the members of Bigbluegill.com. It's a bluegill site and that's what really makes us go but it has been nice during the Winter doldrums to hear and see about some of the other options available right under our noses....Jim would tell us he's no expert but he has…Continue

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…Continue
If you're a bluegill, that is. I love coming across little bitty "one-liners" either in articles or research papers that either stand out as being profound, or explain via scientific documentation something generally perceived or accepted in the (bass) fishing world. Kind of like one of those "A-HA" moments. I don't find many of them, but I've come across a pair of studies…Continue
Here's a massive bluegill caught on Bill "Musky" Modica's spooning method. This method has been heavily featured lately by In-Fisherman Magazine, both in print and on their nationally acclaimed fishing show.
This fish was over a foot long, and looked like it was taking steriods. I'd love for Bill to describe this particular spoon and why he likes it so much. Bill recommended I use this setup, and it worked like a charm.…Continue
Per chatroom discussion request, I'm posting the more indepth discussion here. Expert and personal knowledge opinions are truly welcome. Correct me if any info is incorrect in anyway:
Here's one of the myriad articles I've studied about back in college between 1994 to 2001, while double focused on bio-medical and environment toxicology fields of study. Information was found in late 1995, but was not published and harvest until nearly a decade later. I've followed the information…
