Do you love big bluegill?
So, I'm in central Virginia and I know in small ponds the bream are probably spawning already, on larger impoundments maybe in prespawn mode. I have caught several 'gills and 'crackers with roe in…Continue

I bought an inflatable boat the other day to try to get out after some of the bigger fish that I'm guessing are away from the shoreline here in August.

I wish we could go ahead and slip into a full time Spring pattern.
I'm also noticing that at this private pond I've been fishing, the lily…Continue
