Thanks for your comments John on the N.C. record. I fish several mill ponds out here in Eastern North Carolina and the average gills have went up quite a bit the last ten years. I truly believe we're closing in on that record. We just had that huge Shellcracker in a farm pond a couple of years ago and the Management at the State and Local levels here is working. We're cold in Carolina so it must be bitter up there in Illinois. Goood luck Fishing.

Hey John...the boats are at Richmond Mill and we drove the 8 hours to get there.

Hey John,
Thanks, buddy! We are having lots of fun with Richmond Mill. Doing some basic fisheries management and some outside the box thinking and now we are beginning to see the results.

Hey John...we didn't get any bluegill there on this trip, they tend to be shallower than the perch. Have gotten some very fine gills there in the past from 10 to 11 1/2 inches.

Hey John...that is so cool that you have that 1983 issue of In Fisherman about the pond gills! Wow! My son was only 3 yrs old at the time. Thanks for rminding me how timeless and pure bluegill fishing really is.

That's a big redear for that area. I drive through Staunton on Route 4 every time I get back to visit my Grandma. She lives in Carlinville. Whenever we stay with her, we fish a small private lake that we are members of near Beaver Dam State Park called Lake Rinaker. It has a good population of bluegill that are pretty good sized but no monsters. Used to catch quite a few redear as well, but the lake does get hit pretty hard.

I agree with about the farm ponds - they can be quite productive. My father-in-law is a farmer in Jerseyville and he' got a number of small ponds that he does pretty good at.

Do you make it down there very often?
