"I've been out doing the same thing a few times, when I can. Honestly, though, the Hex Hatch is in full swing right now.  Do you have any areas that have a Hex Hatch, John?  It can been a blast fishing that one."

Christmas Bluegill Wishes

I would like to extend a sincere and heartfelt gratitude to all of the members of BigBluegill.com.

Gees Bruce those are some of the biggest gills I have seen I wouldn't tell anyone where that honey hole is LOL. Reminds me of a little 1 acre pond we had back in the hills of southwest VA.

Mr Bruce, been awhile since we've communicated so though I'd just say have a good spring and better summer.

Please don't re-post with the names reversed........Bob-O

Oh if the folks here only knew our history, there would be many chuckles.
