Sounds great Don......Lake Murray is an oldie but goodie......I totally agree on how crowded Santee Cooper is, more freshwater guides than anywhere I have ever been.....I did catch my personal best on Lake Moultrie back in the 80s so I like to get back at least once a year if I can......Small World....I got married in Summerville at Azaelia Park and still have lots of family there........Bushy Park still has great coppernose and redear but it is crowded seven days a week! Private ponds are some of the best gill fisjhing anywhere if you can find them and get permission....I have a couple spots that I'm thankful to have permission to fish, amazing gills and good numbers.....I don't like to wear out my welcome......Great public waters on the rivers in my region which is what brought me here to build my home in Bluegill heaven.......

Donald I would be honored to be on your friends list. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I’m sure between me and the rest of the BBG site we will come up with some kind of answer or if you just want to chat that’s fine also. THANK YOU much Dick Tabbert

Welcome Donald to Big Bluegill. I am also a member of Big Bluegill wanting to welcome you and to share some of what goes on here at the site. This is a site with loads of information where we can learn and enjoy in what we like doing best, fishing. In this site we have loads of information we can feed off of and share and learn and having a good time doing so. We have FORUMS, BLOGS, CHAT ROOM, SPECIAL GROUPS, VIDEO'S, and the best PHOTOES you can find anywhere on the internet. Feel free to jump in and investigate the site it is loaded with information and above all don't be afraid to participate we are all still in the learning process and improving and honing our skills making us better fishermen/fisherwoman and enjoying it all throughout the process.

What you personally may add my be that little extra something that we can put in our own little bag of tricks something we can use to make us better fisher people ourselves.

We are all about Bluegill, Big Bluegills ( Bluegills, Sunfishes, Red Ears, Brim family) but not to stop there you will read about many different species of fish even some you may not have known even existed in the Blue Gill world and forums with many picture to share, but our main goal is catching that ultimate giant Gill so we can meet that special goal and maybe some braggin rights along the way. Its just a good well rounded site with loads of information with good people a family atmosphere who don't mind sharing, we have loads of fun doing so which you will see.

Our Video section that will keep your blood pumping and make you want to be fishing on that special lake or river fishing your heart out. (TAKE A KID AND DADS FISHING) such a great high. Above all we want you to enjoy yourself don't be afraid to share some of your fishing experiences with us we would love to hear about them please don't be afraid to share your exact lakes with me with all GPS coordinates and the exact baits you used it will be our little secret.

We have the best Photo's on the web some being so good you will be in aw and they are so addictive you'll keep coming back for more, there is truly some beautiful stuff there posted for our BBG family. We all love to share and share we do with some breath taking photo's. It will take you hours to see then all and you'll enjoy every minute of it..

Be aware of our Chat Room which in my opinion is very under utilized but you must be log in to correspond on it. So by all means log in and use It you will meet some interesting and great people there. Enjoy have fun but above all always stay safe. GOOD FISHIN..
