This site

This is one of the only sites, I use anymore. I did belong to a couple others, but they have turned in to, too much drama and fights. I really like this site, seems more like family and friends and good info. Just wanted to thank everyone, for keeping this a great site.



Thanks again

Dogwood Lake in Indiana

I am visiting Dogwood lake for the first time towards the end of September.  I understand the lake is a good bluegill lake.  Has anyone been there recently and can you offer tips on how to fish the lake?

Read a great quote today.

I have been reading a book, written, by a local man. The author is Art Reid, He was a writer for the Southern Illinoisan newsapaper and had a tv show. This quote is from Fishing Southern Illinois.


"Bluegill fisherman are not given to overmodesty, nor do they dampen enthusiasm by putting many bluegills on the scales."
