Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Still cracking on the procrastinated things about my page

Well, I added photos and a pic of myself, I am not the most, photogenic person.I am much, better looking, in person J/K. Anyway, I am not the bluegill fisher I was once, or maybe I never was, but I added some general pics, of a few of the fish, I have caught over the last couple of years.I don't usually bring a camera, as that means a black and white kitty in the boat for me.

Can't have that, but maybe, I'll purchase a scanner and get those in here, when I get extra change to do it.I saw a rather large pike that could have my name on it come Sept, when I seriously start fishing for them along the Lake Michigan shoreline and marinas.

Can't say enough how much I love this site, and the good people on it.No bickering, it's refreshing from some of the big Fishing report boards.Like i said before I have watched Bills vids and followed his reports pretty regular when I see them come up.Would have never thought of spoons for gills, til I saw his vids.Great man to give his technique like that so everyone can enjoy it.I have been doing the same for newbie guys for Lake Michigan perch.


Not sure how many of you fish the Great Lakes, for the annual summer perch fishing,But I will let my technique out there for any who do it works great on all species and it tends to weed out smaller perch, most of the time.

I fish a fairly heavy, bass style rod for this, a 6'6" med/heavy Fast action St.Croix. I grab usually 2 husky jerk sizes(alewife pattern/Black back/silver sides) for this, the big 2 hook model and the first 3 hook model (sizes 10 & 12, I think) I use fireline as the main line and a 4 to 6 foot leader of 10 to 14 lb Fluoro as a leader.I also add 3 suspend dots to the lure itself to get it to run a little deeper then its like working a jerkbait for muskies.I walk the dog all the way back most of the time and sometimes I add some 2 foot pulls in there,just depends on what the fish want. I will say, if you look at the first 2 perch pictures they are 15's and they came on the size 12 jerk.When they want it, they pretty much hammer it, then you reel them in and put them in the basket. I will also add the the king, and the pike, came on the same bait and it works well for LMB's in Lake Michigan also, but they are picky and hard to catch, but a conditional pattern there. Hope some of you find this useful, and gets some results for you too.
