Do you love big bluegill?
So I got a call today from one of my clients...He fished his pond for a couple hours yesterday morning, caught eight largemouth, one of which weighed 1.5 pounds and the rest of which went between three and four pounds each (he's already caught two bass this year just under six pounds each, and several five-pounders)...He also caught five bluegill, while fishing for bass with a plastic worm. The biggest one weighed between one and a half and one and three-quarters pounds on his digital…Continue

Monday and Tuesday were fun days with those aggressive redbreasts.
Monday at the areas I've been hitting the sunfish, perch, and bass, the fish didn't seem too interested in what I had been catching them with. Later in the day once I switched over to a 5cm hot steel Rapala Original Floater and twitched it very lightly on the surface with occasional pauses, those redbreasts were acting like largemouths would on a topwater!
Very colorful redbreasts along…

Congratulations Bruce Condello and Jim Gronaw for your featured photos in the King Fisher Society's "Bluegill Gallery". Richmond Mill Lake is awesome and they got it right when they featured you guys in the Bluegill section. Two passionate people about everything Bluegill and great contributors to this site. Its worth taking a few minutes to check them out folks when you can pull yourself away from Bigbluegill.com :-)
First post on here in a while.
Recently at one of my main local fishing grounds I've been hitting the sunfish with a few yellow perch and largemouth bass mixed in.
The lure that has been getting the fish to hit has been a 7cm brown trout Rapala Jointed. Most times I can see plenty of bluegills and redbreasts of all sizes chasing it.
Recent days I've had with that one lure have been:
1 largemouth, 5 yellow perch, 5 bluegills, 2…Continue
I slow things down in the fall and obviously look deeper around structure adjacent to the bedding areas. Sharp contrast to a late Spring pattern or early Summer where the goal is to cover as much water as possible in those potential bedding locations. In the brackish waters in Carolina I will look for 4 to 8 feet of water and work those areas with a very…Continue

Ok - homemade recipes for chum are good - I encourage that. I have had a lot of experience with chumming over the past 12 years since I converted to a chum-only angler about 90% of the time.
For me - no matter what I do at home with the food processor, the consistency is off which makes the concoction perform badly (when being placed/thrown).
I am sponsored by the TopMix USA company which makes a bluegill chum and I do use the stuff faithfully it is right on…Continue
Hi there. My name is Dick Tabbert. I know some of you from Big Bluegill here and have a favor to ask of you. I started wood carving probably 30 years ago at which time I carved mostly birds and ducks and after 10 years not having enough time I put up the knives and gouges. Now that I'm in Big Bluegill and retired and starting to see some of these fantastic photo's that your posting I'm thinking that It's really time to get back into it. I see…Continue
