Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Jim Gronaw must surely be accustomed to wearing many hats.....husband, father, grandfather, talented outdoor writer, angler extraordinaire, and last but certainly not least, one of our very own moderators, right here at http://bigbluegill.com/ !

Residing in Westminster, MD., You're liable to find Jim Gronaw either casting a line at one of several local hotspots, or busily putting the finishing touches on his latest outdoor themed article. Jim's work appears regularly in the Carrol County Times, under the heading of "Tight Lines". You may also find his work, including his amazing photographic talents, frequently gracing the pages of prestigious outdoor magazines such as In-Fisherman, Outdoor Life, Fishing Facts, and Sports Afield.

Jim was born in Baltimore, MD., in 1952. His first published work came at the young age of 16, in Fishing World magazine. Since then, he has been published over 700 times at the local, regional, and national level.

Here at http://bigbluegill.com/ we are fortunate to be able to count Jim Gronaw as one of our own. He brings a lifetime of outdoor experience to our online family, and his willingness to share and participate enriches each and every one of us.

YUP FOR SURE JIM IS AN INSPIRATION TO US ALL , and we are truly lucky have his insight and ideas on here.
Seems to be a humble man for all his accomplishments and could be otherwise if he wanted to be. I for one count my self lucky to be on his friends list .........

Maybe one day...I'll play half as good as John Sheehan!...maybe!

I know what you mean. Hey, I can dream, at least!

Comment by Jim Gronaw on January 25, 2014 at 9:46pm

Sheesh, guys...I don't know quite what to say. Certainly 'thank you' to all of you and your kind words. Bruce...I am thankful you let me help out with this site and I appreciate those chances I had to fish with you and work on a few projects...we need to do some more of that.

It has been a blessing and an honor to know each of you from this site. Jeffrey..I'm comin' back down for some Carolina gillin

Tony...I'll get you more hybrid stats this year...I'm gunning for a 13 incher!

David...thanks for your wit and insight to this site.

Leo, Carl, Bill, Matt and John Sheehan...thanks for all the kind words. Encouragement is a great thing...something I need to do more of inmy life.

Maybe one day...I'll play half as good as John Sheehan!...maybe!

God Bless you all! and thanks!

Yep, we're blessed to have 'Ol Gronaw among our number. From what I can tell, he makes a pretty wicked fish cake. He also knows at least three chords on the guitar, and helps with the music at his church

Thanks Jim, for all your efforts.

Jim Gronaw is one of those people who just does everything well.

He's an outstanding angler.  He's a top-notch photographer.  He's also a brilliant writer.

 

But I've also found from spending time with him, that he's a deeply committed Christian, who wears his faith on his sleeve.  Jim puts others before himself, and has a very deep sense of family.

 

I'd also like to add that Jim Gronaw is an unbelievably strong supporter of www.bigbluegill.com.  He has tirelessly and freely given of his time to make our site the very best of it's kind on the internet.  Thank you so much, Mr. Gronaw.  Without you, this wouldn't be the wonderful, friendly and informative place that it has become.

 

Thanks, Buddy.

 

Sincerely, Bruce Condello.  Founder of www.bigbluegill.com
