Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I've just gotten out of the hospital after three weeks with pancreatitis and a staff infection.  I was in critical condition for three days and the only things that kept me hanging on was the thought of my family and fishing.  I kept telling myself that I haven't spent enough time with my grandchildren and I haven't caught  enough panfish.  I realized how quickly life can be taken away and I was being too stingy to give up the things that I love.  Fortunantly there is no sign of cancer and the outlook seems clear.  Don't want to sound morbid by sending out a post like this but the love of family and personal persuits should be important to every one.  Thanks for bearing with me.  Nick
