Fall Equinox

Today is the Fall Equinox.  For all of us in North America, if you want to find where in your yard (or anywhere for that matter), the true east and west are, simply look at where the sun rises for true east, and where it sets, for true west.  Pretty cool.  As far as the Bluegill fishing goes, It should be pretty good until the weather changes and the water starts to cool down.

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."
