Do you love big bluegill?
For 2012 I've promised myself that I would see at least five anglers catch their first ten-incher. This means I'm going to have to take a bunch of folks fishing.
Whatever it takes.
At 7pm tonight, In-Fisherman's Doug Stange explains, and demonstrates this unique, and highly effective technique for taking big bluegills with modified spoons.

I'm new here and after cruising this site for a bit decided that there are some great opportunities to learn a lot from a very knowledgeable member base.
I'm just getting ready to start building my own rods and want to use a 8' - 9' 2 piece fly rod blank to make a spinning rod with single foot Aluminum Oxide guides and use a close faced underspin reel with monofilament. I had one similar to this built in 98 but just recently broke it and the fellow that made it is…Continue

I bought a couple rabbit hair jigs that I want to try out next spring. They have a movement all there own sort of pulse in the water. Has anybody used them before and was it a good experience or not.
This blog will be an attempt on my part to document my family's attempt to grow consistent numbers of big Bluegill, which in this case will mean fish that weigh one pound or over. The key words here being "consistent numbers". Think of the times you have seen a photo of a smiling angler holding up a single, colossal Bluegill. There's certainly nothing wrong with that, after all it was his or her skill as an angler that lead to that memorable catch, and they should be justifiably proud of the…Continue
I was thinking maybe if I got my wife an electric reel I can get her fishing again and that would be to my benefit maybe I can fish more than once or twice a year cause she'll be with me. The one's I seen through the internet look big and heavy. I need small and light. I know she loves to fish maybe this will be the ticket so she can enjoy it once again. I know I will have to order it because I've never seen them in any sporting goods store and I know there not cheep so I really need to shop…Continue
Last month a buddy and I hit a private residential pond that we hit back in September. Whole nightcrawlers with no weight on the bottom was the ticket.
Both of us together ended up with close to 20 bluegills, 4 pumpkinseeds, 5 yellow perch, and 3 largemouths.
Most of the gills were bulls. Perfect 8" to 10" chubby ones which I got good panfrying fillets from. They were fighters.…Continue
This question is for Bruce Condello. Some of my friends told me that they have been feeding panfish small nugget size or pellet size catfood in one of the public ponds. Is this a safe idea or can it damage the fish? Nick
