Yes i have said it Bow to Your Gills. What is this all about? The gills of winter can be finicky and all be it jsut hard for many to catch. With many new ice rods on the market the lite bite is now easier detected.

The water, calm, clear and blue
Mesmerizes me as I search for you.

At last I’m able to pull it in
A big beautiful bluegill is my win.

And thank you all for your comments and encouragement. I just wish I had time to get out… Continue
