Welcome my Illinois Bluegill Brother! This is a fantastic site with people who love bluegills - probably the best sport fish in the U.S. My favorite thing in the world is catching a big bag of 100 bluegills from our local ponds. Love it.
I have a club that fishes near Downers Grove -and I love cane pole fishing so a lot of our venues have nice bluegills in them. I am also starting a kid's league / family league which is some cheap fun. Sorry I was a bit slow on getting back to you - but there you go.
Welcome - now I can't wait for the ice to get off the ponds.
Welcome aboard Clarence. Enjoy our site and use it. There is lots that goes on. Look at the blogs and forums. There is lot to be learned here all we have to do is use it. You are now part of an interesting bunch of people who have a common goal we all love to fish and fish is what we do when the opportunity arises . When we do this thing we all love to do we are learning and when we learn hopefully we pass on that bit of knowledge that we learned. There is tons of information for us to fine tune our skills. In the same token don't be afraid to share information yourself it may be something we can use ourselves to help us in our fishing endeavors. Then in the same token if you have a question don't be afraid to ask. Almost everybody here will answer your question if he or she knows the answer and it may be something someone else want to hear the answer to but hasn't asked yet. There is also photo's and even some videos so don't be afraid to explore. I know you will enjoy the site because I know you like to fish or you wouldn't have joined you see the interest is there. Where else can you learn and have so much fun doing it. Have fun enjoy the site and GOOD FISHIN..
