Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

It's that time of year again in Northern Minnesota, when the lakes lock up, the hands, go numb, and we drill to get our fish! Local reports are flooding in with 4-5 inches on most of the smaller lakes. Some of the larger lakes have ice up it is dangerous yet. I don't know when I will be able to get the auger out this year. I have been dealing with Sciactica since September 22nd. I have done phyisical theropy for a month and a half, and most recently had a spinal epidural cortisone shot in the L5 area to numb the pain. An MRI has confirmed that I do have a herninated disc at L5/S1 anlong with 3 more buldging discs above that. Surgery is immenient. Even with all that I still have my gear ready and I do plan on getting out once or twice for that rush of drilling holes and catching fish!
