    Hello,

    I am not really a bluegill fisherman per-say but I have caught my fair share of bluegills in my life. The biggest bluegill I have ever caught was an 11.75" malel at wagon train last year. Went out to Wildwood a couple weeks ago to fish for catfish, and every cat fisherman has to fish for bait. I have fished there a lot for bait and have caught a few of…

It's been a terrible spring so far

So up to today I have had to have unexpected surgery on my wrist which will prevent me from fishing until fall.  The good news here, I have health insurance.

Last week or so, we had all the rain and it turned a little creek (2" deep) into a 5' river.  This in turn flooded my house.   Good news, kids safe and I have minimal damage.  Mold is the only looming concern.

This river though, it filled my pond up.  Thats great since I had drained it and killed off the…

When Hybrids Attack!

After seeing Bruce and Teeg and Josh and others with all those big hybrid sunfish posted up I decided to check my local hybrid factory, a 2 acre pond about 25 miles south of me, to see if I could catch a few good ones. The pond owner said that they hadn't had much luck with them so far this spring, but I didn't let that bother me too much. Last October I had taken a GSF x BG here that measured 12 inches,,,the first 12 inch sunfish, of any kind, I had taken in my home, or local, waters. So I…

High water gilling

Went to check one of my favorite lakes this evening as we had some flooding a couple of weeks ago.  Lake level was up three ft but that didn't keep me from finding some of my marked bedding spots.  Paddled back to a nice shallow flat where the water was about 5ft,  The water had cleared up a lot so I was able to see the nice stretch of craters well before I was on them.  Distanced my kayak several feet away and rolled out a cast with a popper dropper rig.  Slurp!!! Mr. Bluegill was home. …
