Something exciting is about to happen!

An important member of the bigbluegill.com family is about to get a little "media love". :-)

One of them is named Jim Gronaw.

The origination of www.bigbluegill.com

www.bigbluegill.com was founded by Bruce Condello and Aaron Matos during the March Madness tournament of 2008.  On March 20, 2008, Bruce was watching an NCAA tournament basketball game from his home, and was talking by text to Aaron, when Aaron suggested a website dedicated to raising and catching bluegill.  Aaron did the work of identifying available domain names, and Bruce made the final decision to go with…

Giant bluegill using the Modica spooning method.

Here's a massive bluegill caught on Bill "Musky" Modica's spooning method.  This method has been heavily featured lately by In-Fisherman Magazine, both in print and on their nationally acclaimed fishing show.

 

This fish was over a foot long, and looked like it was taking steriods.  I'd love for Bill to describe this particular spoon and why he likes it so much.  Bill recommended I use this setup, and it worked like a charm.…

2012

For 2012 I've promised myself that I would see at least five anglers catch their first ten-incher.  This means I'm going to have to take a bunch of folks fishing. 

 

Whatever it takes.

A moment...

A moment of silence for our good buddy, bluegillboogieman. We miss you. It's been a year, but it really only seems like a week or two. You loved bluegill, and you loved BBG and all of it's members. Thanks for all you contributed.

Lake Perris optimal time of year

So if any of you good folks in California were to recommend the best month of the year to fish Lake Perris, what would it be?  Are there guides who take people out specifically for bluegill and redears?

I was just checking the "Google Analytics" stat sheet for www.bigbluegill.com and I noticed that we have some serious activity from California.  Can somebody please give me a little bit of information on this phenomenon?  Besides the fact that there are some bluegill there?  :-)

Tim Overbaugh and his taxidermy might be the best in the U.S.

I've dedicated the entire front page of BigBluegill to our very kind, generous and talented friend, Tim Overbaugh.

But Tim Overbaugh's work is unparalleled. 

 

Tim Overbaugh has made the very generous offer that if members of Big Bluegill…
