Fished A New Pond on Friday

Hey guys and gals, I got to fish yet another new pond this past Friday. Actually the pond was drained about 6 years ago and dug out and restocked with bass, gills, channel cats and some hybrid stripers. I had fished the same pond back in the early 1990's and it was fabulous at that time, producing several 7 to 9 pound bass and my personal best bluegill of 11 3/4 inches.



My buddy Loren and I fished it and he got some nice eater-sized channel cats to 20 inches and we caught bass to 18… Continue

Any other 'gillgetters from New England?

Where I'm from (SE Massachusetts), Bluegill aren't a very sought after species of fish. Most anglers around here are Striper fanatics. I spend the vast majority of my time fishing the sweetwater for Bass, Panfish, and Trout from the comfort of my Ocean Kayak.

I'm curious to know if there are any other members from the New England area.

Bethany Reservoir (California) 'gills

Fished Bethany Reservoir (California Delta) yesterday, with my wife and kids.



We started off at Clifton Court Forebay in the early afternoon, but it was really windy and we were getting no action except slimy weeds. Not much fun for me, and even less so for the little ones. We'd never been out to the Delta to fish before, and were considering heading over to Los Vaqueros when the guy catfishing next to us suggested nearby Bethany reservoir and said a good bluegill bite was going on… Continue

'Gillin on vanduse lake-9/7/09

Went fishing on Vanduse lake near Jacobson, Mn. on Monday and had a great afternoon. Me and my kids caught several gills in the 6"-8" range and some nice crappie and bass. All of the fish were hanging out in the middle of the lake just off an exposed weed hump were the water dropped from about 9' down to 14' in a boat length. A 2" pumpkinseed Gulp minnow grub fished on a plain 1/16th oz. jig out-produced all other bait including crawlers! I was very impressed with the production I got out of… Continue

How To Help Beginner Anglers



It is very rewarding to see the excitement on a new anglers face, young or old, when they catch their first fish. The history of this excitement can be traced all the way to the caveman days when the children were taught by their elders how to gather food and catch fish. When the child caught their first fish, I am sure that they were welcomed back at their dwelling with smiles and admiration.



The reason why the size of the fish is… Continue

Stunted Growth

Today, befor I went to college I had a few hrs. on my hands so I went fishing. I had fished this pond befor and cought some big cat fish and some huge bass. No one ever fishes this pond because it's right in front of a fitness gym, but I do. So today I thought I would try out some blugill fishing. I had my fly rod and my gillrod with worms. I was catching them left and right but they were all about the same size 4 to 5 inchs only. So I thought some… Continue

Old Bald Guy

Old Bald Guy.



That was his Big Bluegill name. It was also his name on the NEFGA forum that I frequent.



He was also Rog Flanders, but for my purposes here, he's going by OBG.



OBG passed away this week. My tears have finally cleared enough to see this computer screen so I can make a humble attempt to write how I feel about him.



OBG was a true bluegill lover. He also loved people. And he loved people who loved bluegill. OBG loved his family, and the… Continue
