Sharon, my great, great grandfather, Rudolph Boysen, invented the boysenberry back in the early 19th century. I don't grow them, but they are part of the family tree.

I would love to be fishing Sharon but Irene has other ideas. Hatches are secure as we wait it out in Carolina. Good luck to all of you this weekend and keep us in your thoughts over here in the MidAtlantic.

I finally got out to fish it felt great and we know it don't take much to make me happy in the fishing department. My sweet sister in law said she would set with the wife if I wanted to go. I guess we knew what that answer would be. I didn't catch lots of fish but I caught some quality fish. That don't mean I didn't catch any small ones cause I did. I threw them back. I did get about 6 P seeds probably between 6 and 7 inches that I wish I had kept and put in my pond, to me they are the most beautiful fresh water fish going. I used 1 ½ inch white pearl twister tail with a red 1/16 oz head. I caught total of 6 crappies,4 large mouth bass, 6 punkin seeds, 3 bluegills, 1 rock bass and 8 small perch. Had a blast. Have a good day and GOOD FISHIN..

I flew home through Dallas early Saturday morning. I hope you got some of that rain. It delayed our outbound flight as it poured for hours. The flight crew was based in Dallas and couldn't help but to start cheering!

Ohhhhh Sharon is my #2 daughter's name, and she is an avid fisher too. 7.5 inches?

That's just embarrassing! LOL Very, very nice! So you released it huh?

Thanks Sharon. I'm originally from Louisiana and have alot of family in East Texas. Its good to read your posts and see your photos from the great state of Texas. I fished some big farm ponds in Northeast Texas around Paris with a friend from the Navy in the Eighties and my parents had a lake front home on Toledo Bend Reservoir for twenty years. We also made it over to Sam Rayburn a few times over the years. I'm wandering how bad the drought is hurting the fishing this year, everything I read is amazing....Good luck to you when you're able to get back out.

Sharon the two locations that I fish frequently with large populations of beavers have much more activity at night. In one instance last month I arrived 30 minutes before first light only to get a nasty greeting (repeated tail slaps) from the resident beaver family. They are actually visiting a corn field adjacent to the water and cutting the corn down only to return to the water and eat the ears. The great thing about beavers in North Carolina, they always maintain a healthy fishery. Look forward to your photos!

Unfortunately this is not a website that I developed. It was started by a company called Ning. They do all of the bells and whistles. I just talk bluegill. I'm actually not very into computers...just fish.

Yes, Sharon, that is small for two-year-old fish.  Almost certainly their slow growth is due to the large numbers of green sunfish you have in the pond.  You need more bass, several more, to thin out the GSF, and then your bluegill will grow better.

 

Just for reference, I stocked some coppernose fingerlings (1-2") in a half-acre pond near me last June, and some of those fish are already over 8", at barely a year old.

My guess it's something on your end. I just checked with a couple of other members and they are not having problems. Hmmm. I'm not sure. I wish I was as good at techie things as I am at fishing,,....

I just want to know if Sharon is ever going to change her name  when she catches a gill bigger than 7 1/2 inches?  It's bound to happen sooner or later.
