Well, was planning a trip to a new pond Friday. Just checked forcast, severe storms. Spring is a love hate relationship. I love the fishing(when I can go), but hate storms and wind. Wind, and fronts this year have been crazy. Also water really low around here,so we need the rain.
There has been some discussion lately on stunted bluegill and the overharvest of bluegill. I found this article, on how in Illinois they are looking into this problem. If anyone has anyother articles about this problem, and other bluegill problems, please post link.........Thanks Dwayne
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.
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."
I have looked all over Southern Il for a certain hook. I am looking for long shank, 16 and above hooks. I need long fine wire hooks, any help?
I have an intereset in homemade baits and old time fishing methods. One of my favorite baits is hot dogs, I season up. I was wondering if anyone has any homemade bait or cheap bait they use? Also, as a kid I remember a guy calling up fish with a tuning fork. Would love to hear more ideas like this.
