Tell me how you're finding us! I noticed lots of new traffic this morning. Usually that means we've been mentioned in a magazine article or something like that!
What's that you say? You didn't get what you really wanted for Christmas, You've easily broken half of your new year's resolutions already, and your team lost the Super Bowl? Not to mention that the weather stinks, you're unable to go fishing, and you've already organized that durn tackle box so many times that the plastic hinges snapped off?"
"Well you've come to the right place guys and gals, because you KNOW bigbluegill.com puts a smile on your face! And now we're gonna' give you…Continue
Obviously I didn't do any DNA testing, but here's the numbers from my Richmond Mill data.

3 bluegill from 3.00 + pounds 2 CNBG and one that was probably northern.
My dental office has been nominated as best dental office in Lincoln, NE. We're Oceans Dental, and we're under "Dental Office". Please vote early and often! :)
If you vote for me, send me a PM, or put it on this page and I'll randomly pick out somebody to send a fun prize! Thanks!!!
A 20 pack of wilper magic lures from Bruce Condello if you can be the first to help me get ahold of Fish Chris Wolfgram. He is a member on BBG.com, and I have to talk to him before Friday night in regards to a story I'm writing. I think he's from California!
Help me out, BBG'ers!!!
Well, folks...I got a little bored this weekend and created a new website.
Non-interactive, but meant to show off a few types of hybrid gamefish, and also promote some friends businesses.
What do you think?
Here's a nice 8.5 inch bluegill caught in 2013 by Bruce Condello using the new CLC product. The new Wild River series of tackle systems made my day more about fishing, and less about hauling.…Continue
Got out for 30 minutes before work this morning, and I caught 5 HBG. All good fish, although the cold killed the batteries in my scale, so estimating weight between 1 lb for smaller fish, and around 22 ozs. for largest. Ice jig tipped with spikes, water has risen to 44 degrees, air temp was 30 degrees.…Continue
A while back my boss at work told me he was going to be cleaning out his basement and that he might have a few things I would be interested in. A few days later he calls me to his office and gives me this... He said it was in with some of his dad' s old stuff and since I enjoy fly fishing he thought I would possibly be able to do something with it. I was very thankful and…Continue
No one knows how deep it really is, at least no one alive today.

Alright everyone...we've seen these bugs in action before, and we all know how well they work....here's your chance to have some of your very own! BBG member David Eitutis (Tooty) has generously tied up some of his creations and wants to give em' away to a lucky angler! Here's a look at the goodies.....Tooty's even throwing in the case!!!!
Back on the Blogs Forum. Been doing mostly saltwater fishing for the past 2 months. Not much panfish action in freshwater, but have caught a few largemouths, chain pickerel, and recently did a river smallmouth day. Here's a report for my recent panfish success.
After coming from the private lake that usually catches me those monster gills and not catching anything there, I went to a local city park that I'm familiar with and has the Pequonnock River running through…Continue
I have been getting a lot of response and questions about the simple-to-tie grass shrimp hairjig patterns that Jeffrey Abney is having so much success with in North Carolina. Believe me, I never thought such a simple, easy to tie pattern would prove so deadly, but I am nonetheless delighted with our success with them. In the photo above are several olive/ green / gray…Continue
Managing big bluegill
Bull Bluegill a rare breed indeed!
By Mike Pehanich
“One-pound bluegill!” cried my boyhood fishing buddy, Bill Auten. He had just returned from his aunt’s cottage at Camp Lake, Minnesota, and, with youthful zeal, we were already plotting a sales pitch to our dads to fish there together the following…
Despite all the challenges at home these days, featured member Jim Gronaw took the time to make and send me some great hair jigs and grass shrimp in pink for me to try in my local waters..Been out twice since I received them and it is with great satisfaction that I report tremendous success on the blackwater rivers with Jim's creations......Great talent and a good imagination can create the luck every fisherman is hoping for....Thanks again Jim for the kind gesture.....Here are a few…Continue
On occasion, I work in the windy city.....one of my superiors asked me if I wanted to see a cool fish market...I said yes. We stopped at the corner of Halsted and Fulton Place for a peek....this place was awesome....it was literally a self serve fish market.....all types of fresh fish laying on crushed ice....everything I put a nose to smelled very fresh....Walleyes, Crappies, Sunfish, Striped Bass, Perch....this place was the bomb....grab a pair of gloves, a plastic bag....grab what you…Continue
Many of my fishing buddies devote most of their time fishing for Bass....or Muskies.....or Walleyes, but rarely do they target panfish.....I enjoy my time on the water with them, and try not to spread myself too thin throughout the whole wacky bunch....however, when I start to get razzed about how often I like to fish for bluegills by my "buddies"....it seems more like ridicule.
This is the kinda stuff these guys send me....…Continue
