Hi Jim, thanks for the nice comments! I fish any and all ponds/lakes that I can (most of those came from a variety of public and private ponds/lakes in both Virginia and New York areas (lived in VA most of my life and moved up to upstate NY in 02/08). Ultimate dream which I'm working on is to own my own pond and raise trophy bluegill!!!

Hey Jim we are hooked up ...i was just checkin' your page when your email came in ...Can't find the black Crappie photo on your site that Bruce responded to...I might be flippin' thru your slideshow too quickly though...great perch Man!...gotta go teach guitar in my basement and make sure no one gets hooked on my ice fishin rigs...if they do I warned them all ..it's their own fault.Keep in touch!

Hey Jim,Dave here for some reason cant message back on original, Anyhow cant say I have caught any "MONSTER" Crappie but im sure they are there though. Cant answer on ice fishing there just not sure--There is a rules and regs sign there. If you get the chance this spring and want to go to Little Seneca shoot me a message! Have many outstanding days there

Yep that's the one Lake May , Lotsa nice crappie in there along with gills, Largemouth, and BIG carp. I have a little tin rig (12 foot jon) we put in there (half the lake is private land but in the boat I can hit untouched water!! I also really love Little Seneca lake. Ever been?

all summer, hunting for big gills takes up most of my time. I fish mostly in south west MI. Gull Lake is where I do most of my fishing. 7miles north to south, plenty of shallow plains with steep drop offs. Any way this site is wonderful thanks

Hey, another MD Native, could you see if you could give me some nice spots

Cool! I should have a piece out in InFish soon on catchin crappies from the shore, we did well last year and I managed about 75 crappies from 13 to 15 in, relaesed over half of those fish. For the past several years I have been releasing all bluegills over 10 in, keeping only a handful of 8 to 9 inchers now and again for a meal. Talk to ya!

Jim,
I have followed your articals in In-Fisherman, I'm from southeast Michigan and fish the backwaters, marina's and canals of the Detroit River, Lk. ST.Clair and Erie.I think we share alot of similar methods and types of catches. I typically do not keep very many Bluegills (I 'd rather eat perch) and anything over 81/2 inches goes back..I have caught several 10+ gills fishing for prespawn crappies that are in some of the same places. Genz worms w/1inch tubes and a thill shy bite float can do a number on alot of the smart ones....Bruce Yinger

If you get an 11+ inch 'gill, you'd better get me a picture, dude! :-)

Welcome to the Big Bluegill group, Jim!

That's an absolutely gorgeous black crappie in your profile. Wow!

We hope that you'll enjoy this site.
