Thanks, Dick. My wife and I downsized into a little condo last year, with a nice pond off the patio. It is full of bluegill.  I have been keeping the 7" to 9"-ers, and releasing most others. I have caught a few 10-inchers, two 11 -inchers and one that was just shy of 12 inches long. (I recently started taking pictures.) I was even catching fish the week of Thanksgiving. Later, Gator!

Thanks for the welcome, Bill.  I'm here in Central NY waiting on good ice to form.  In the mean time, I spend my time making and selling my Ice Fishing Rods under the name, Hardwater Customs.  It became a hobby business about 8 yrs ago.  I was forced to retire from the Sheriff's Patrol due to injuries and was bored out of my mind.  I combined my hobby of fixing and building rods and ice fishing and it's gotten me through a few surgeries and some rough times.  Nothing beats getting out and catching 'Gills, Sunnies and any of the other well known "Panfish"!  Thanks to all for a great site!  I look forward to many hours of enjoyment.  When I get a chance, I'll post a few pics of my rods and catches.  In the meantime, feel free to look me up on Facebook under Hardwater Customs or on eBay under the seller name of sealpup2.  Thanks again from CNY !

Thanks for the warm welcome so far this seems like my kinda place 
I'm from Springfield Illinois and although I don't get to Bluegill fish a lot cause I work 96 hours a week,, In my profession I get to talk about it a lot and get to help others in their pursuit to catch an elusive trophy 
My dream growing up was to work till It was time to retire then open a bait and tackle shop ,, Well at 31 years old I decided it was time so I hung up my night job and opened Big Red's Bait and Tackle,, I'm 43 now and I've been in business for 11 years ,, I have an online store BigRedsBait.com ,, My main Bluegill Jig is Terrys Rockhoppers ,, Then Again I Am not here to sell stuff ,, Just here for info and to share

Hey Dick thanks for the kind welcome to Big Bluegill. Living in NJ I dont see many gills  over 6 or 7 inches so I enjoy seeing what a big Gill looks like and how much fun it is to fish for them. I still enjoy a few hours in pursuit of these great little fighters. Especially now that I have taught myself to  use a fly rod. thanks again for the welcome. John "the iceman" DiCosmo
