Do you love big bluegill?
I just got back from fishing one of favorite lakes today. What I found out after I got on the water is that it had just been fertilized. I for one don’t like to fish fertilize lakes because I feel it affects the way the fish feed. What are your feelings on fishing fertilized lakes and how and what do you guys use…Continue

About 30 minutes from me in Columbus, Georgia, there's a ritzy family resort called Callaway Gardens. The resort has a main lake of around 120 acres. It's a fee based lake where one can rent a boat and trolling motor for $35.00 for a half day's fishing. An angler may take 7 bluegill well over 1 1/2 pounds, 7 bass, and all of the crappie he can tote! I talked with the fisheries biologist, and he said that the gill limit is low (at one time an angler could take home 15 gills), but due to the…Continue
Tuesday's fishing trip was one of those days when you say to yourself could it get any better. After arriving at the lake around 1:30 I proceeded to get all my gear and little Raider boat out of the truck and head to some of the out of
way fishing holes on our lake. As usual I was joined by a slue of other boats.
Then there was the endless groups of bank fisherman with their reels all
positioned on various places on the banks. So I was fortunate to be in good

Went fishing in central florida several days ago and caught 7 crappie and 2 gills. The largest crappie measured 14.25 inches. Its always such a thrill to catch em on a light flyrod. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me. All of the fish were caught using a 1.25 inch Mister Twister Exude Nymph (Moss Green/Pearl color) on a thin wire Gamakatsu hook and a sliding bead head weight. The oil in the skillet will be sizzling this weekend.

Had a good couple of days fishing in Sussex County, Delaware this week. Me and my buddy Charlie were fishing primarily for hickory shad, but we ran into a lot of other species to include redbreast and redear sunfish, white perch, yellow perch, bluegills, herring, bonus slab crappie and some surprise white shad up in the down-state tributaries and tidal creeks. For some reason, people don't bother too much with panfish… Continue

Wow! I just got back from fishing and as I speak we have a 'cool' front roaring through that is dropping temps from the upper 80's down to the low 50's tonight. But just a few hours ago it was warm and sunny and the previous 2 days had been record high low 90's. This pushed fish shallow and pre-spawn gills were just a cast away, staging out away from bedding sites. But they were quick to hit crystal braid jigs and hair jigs. Great, non-stop action for… Continue
I was taking a hike through a park yesterday with the woman, when we came to a pond (with a "no fishing" policy-which is fine) and walked out on to a small bridge. Along with a few turtles there were quite a few nice size gill's hovering about. I assume because people feed them, although there is a "no feeding" policy as well. I usually don't start fishing in earnest until May here in northern Ohio because I haven't had that much luck going any earlier. This has got me wondering if the warm…Continue
