Do you love big bluegill?
At first I thought maybe it was from my M.D. He's been pushing me to eat better, and as you can see there were some pretty good items here. But then I realized it was from my BBG buddies.
First of all there were saltine crackers. Always good for someone like me who likes to talk too much. A…Continue
I would like to extend a sincere and heartfelt gratitude to all of the members of BigBluegill.com.
I know I've been lacking in posts and pictures lately, but the demands of my family and my business render me an observer most of the time. I read every post and enjoy every picture. Every big bluegill caught feels like I landed it myself.
I hope that all of you have an amazing Christmas, and a great new year. 2016 will surely be full of great catches, great…Continue

Kyle VerMaas with a monster hybrid sunfish, and a pretty girl on each arm.
I was on the 25-minute ride home from Branched Oak Lake, and I was miserable beyond words. My battle with a big walleye had ended badly. An inexplicable unbuttoning that left me tearful and maybe even a…Continue

As president of www.bigbluegill.com, I'd like to post some photos of high quality taxidermy involving bluegill, redear sunfish, pumpkinseed sunfish, and other related lepomids. I will accept submission of taxidermy efforts from taxidermists and anglers who own high quality bluegill or other sunfish mounts. Please have patience with me. If you send me a photo on this page, it could take me a week or two to post the photo. Because of the high value…Continue
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!
Obviously I didn't do any DNA testing, but here's the numbers from my Richmond Mill data.

37 bluegill from 2.0-2.99 pounds 19 CNBG and 18 Northern strain
3 bluegill from 3.00 + pounds 2 CNBG and one that was probably northern.

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

Here's a link to a well thought out set of association pond guidelines, that help enhance bluegill populations.
