Hello Bullworm,

That's such a cool nickname I probably don't want to know what it means. There is something I would like ask about though. You recently replied to a blog with a pic of a 10"er cut out. I think I recall an earlier mention that you work at a graphic design business.

If you have read any of my posts you have probably figured out I don't have a clue about a lot and have a strange way of revealing that. Well I have got a really strange picture in my head for a T-shirt design I would love to have. It involes a real bad bluegill. I mean bad. Freshwater terrorist is what he is. Getting the elaborate picture in my head onto a computer screen, much less a T-shirt, involves a lot more than I can imagine. I guess... I did imagine this bad gill!. Anyway, would you help me get it out of my head with a dose of reality, or a map to a real picture for a T-shirt that only cost a few hundred or so?

Hey BullWorm, Thanks for your kind comment about my RedBreast Sunfish! I always let any Panfish (Gill, Crackers, RedBreast, etc) go that are 9 inches or above as of course, they are the Broodstock of the pond and keep the "Super Genes" in that particular body of water!! I still take photos and will let the Taxidermist do a Fiberglass replica of any true monster that I'm lucky enough to land!!! Tight Lines and keep those awesome photos comin!!!

Hey, I took a listen down Slave Raider lane, and remember the tune Make Some Noise. I tried not to get too glam in that time of my youth. Motley Crue was the only hair band I claimed. Iron Maiden and Judas Priest dominated my records and tapes. I guess they still kinda do. I'm impressed by your liking of Quiet Riot. I washed a bunch of dishes to Metal Health and Ronny James Dio as a kid. Your comments are always appreciated my MN brother!

You have learned well grasshopper. Nothing soothes the soul more than the BLISTERING solo of the metal guitar. May it continue to peel your scalp.

Hey Patric,

NEAT site for those who love the sound of a 9.5 in Gill suching in a popper. I always knew there was something special about guys that chase Bluegills. I am a bit quick with my 2# than with this computer!

Thanks for the comment,

Hey Bullworm...thanks!

About the slip-sinker rig, easy...run a bullet or egg sinker on your line, pinch a B sized split-shot about 20 inches up from the end of the line and tie on a # 10 or 12 hook for smaller garden worms or a pair of #4 or #6 baitholder hooks for larger nightcrawlers. The shot may travel down to the baited hook after repeated casts so, some guys use a small barrel swivel as the 'stopper' and attach a floro leader to complete the bait/hook rig. I use 1/8, 1/4 and 1/2 oz bullet weights for various situations and needed distance on the cast to get to spooky, clearwater fish.

The trick here is to allow the fish to travel off with the bait as it runs through the bullet or egg sinker. I usually leave an open bail and let the fish run a few feet before setting the hook.

Hope this makes sense!

Hey tough guy! I love how you noticed the "Sage" flyrod.

You know, its funny...sometimes I have to talk my wife into smiling...she catches so many really nice fish, some of them trophys, and she just acts like its just another day in the park! Me, I'd be smilin in my sleep after a good day of fishing!

thanks...see ya!
