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…Continue
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…Continue

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.

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…Continue
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. …Continue
