I've got this one spot along the Appomattox River where I have caught an incredible amount of different species of fish.

Well, I made it back to Big Bluegill! Last year I just didn't have much time to fish due to other obligations. This year should be different though! Wishing everyone a great season!

Best year fishing for me ever. To date I have caught 19 different species - the most ever for me. I am off of my Spotted Bass kick that I've had the past couple of years and into the mighty Bowfin. The Bowfins are running wild this year! Seems like the Gars are plentiful also, even though I have not caught one yet.

Hope to do some fishing this weekend. Haven't decided on where to go yet or what species to target. Will it be a Smallmouth roundup, a Bowfin bonanza, a BillyGar bruising, or another chapter in the Rocky saga?

Went Longnose Gar fishing last night and had a blast!. Because of their narrow mouths these fish are extremely hard to hook and they are MASTERS at stealing live bait. Got skunked, but still had fun because of the challenge.
