As we close out what I consider to be peak on the Albemarle region of coastal North Carolina for Bluegill fishing, I wanted to take a glance back over the last three months and see how things went. Here's what I discovered for 2016:

 In May I fished 15 times for a total of 1,024 gills.........the largest creel was 120 and the lowest was 25........That worked out to an average bluegill creel of 68 for these fishing…

THE HUNT FOR ALABAMA BLUEGILL DAY #3

Today was a very cool day for July in Alabama.  I was not able to co fish this morning before work, but I was lucky and able to fish for a few hours this afternoon after work.  So I went to Old Camp Crosby Lake to try to catch a few fish.  This lake I have found very hard to fish since it is so heavily fished.  All that I have ever caught here is a bunch of  2 to 3 inch bluegill and bass, but today I found out that a Shakespeare ultra light rod and reel with 4 lb…

Where to go

Hello to all !!!!!

I moved to Dallas / Fort Worth Texas from San Diego Ca. about a year ago. I would like to know what lakes near me would hold

decent size Blue Gil. I purchased a 14.5" Lund and belong to all of the State Parks in Texas. This all sounds great but there is a lot of lakes,rivers, and streams in this area. Can someone point me in the right direction.

Thanks

The Hunt for Alabama Bluegill

     Hey guys I have just gotten back into fishing about two weeks ago because a friend had invited me to go with him one day.  My wife said that might have been a big mistake because since then I have bought four rod and reals and a lot of tackle and go fishing almost every morning before work.  I have always loved to fish for bluegill and crappie because they are so much fun to catch and my mom and now my wife love to eat them.  That being said I have never fished in Alabama before two…
