Welcome Tracy to fishing electronics. I started this site after seeing my system had so many functions I wasn't aware of. Our electronics of today have so many function most of us are not aware of. I started this group to bring it to our attention not only what our unit can do but being able to do it. I hoping this group will help to simplify our use of electronic to help us to better come acquainted with our individual units. The group is for all any input will be great.

This is a site with loads of information where we can learn and enjoy in what we like doing best, fishing. In this site we have loads of information we can feed off of and share and learn and having a good time doing so. We have FORUMS, BLOGS, CHAT ROOM, SPECIAL GROUPS, VIDEO'S, and the best PHOTO'S you can find anywhere on the internet. Feel free to jump in and investigate the site it is loaded with information and above all don't be afraid to participate we are all still in the learning process and improving and honing our skills making us better fishermen/fisherwoman and enjoying it all throughout the process.

What you personally may add my be that little extra something that we can put in our own little bag of tricks something we can use to make us better fisher people ourselves.

We are all about Bluegill, Big Bluegills ( Bluegills, Sunfishes, Red Ears, Brim family) but not to stop there you will read about many different species of fish even some you may not have known even existed in the Bluegill world and forums with many picture to share, but our main goal is catching that ultimate giant Gill so we can meet that special goal and maybe some bragging rights along the way. Its just a good well rounded site with loads of information with good people a family atmosphere who don't mind sharing, we have loads of fun doing so which you will see.

Our Video section that will keep your blood pumping and make you want to be fishing on that special lake or river fishing your heart out. (TAKE A KID AND DADS FISHING) such a great high. Above all we want you to enjoy yourself don't be afraid to share some of your fishing experiences with us we would love to hear about them please don't be afraid to share your exact lakes with me with all GPS coordinates and the exact baits you used it will be our little secret.

We have the best Photo's on the web some being so good you will be in aw and they are so addictive you'll keep coming back for more, there is truly some beautiful stuff there posted for our BBG family. We all love to share and share we do with some breath taking photo's. It will take you hours to see then all and you'll enjoy every minute of it..
