Wonderful to keep up with things on bigbluegill.com. My grandfather made me a bluegill fisherman as a kid growing up in Louisiana and I get joked all the time about bluegill fishing from a bass boat. I'm on vacation through the fourth of July and look forward to sharing memories with friends and family. Thanks for the friend request and I look forward to talking Gills with you.

Hey Bruce! my road trip across the FL panhandle and down the E. coast has been delayed until tomorrow by heavy rain, lightening, and wind... I can't stop to stretch my legs and wet a line in that! I've been doing a google search for hints on the best shellcracker spots between here and there. The serious camping and fishing will have to wait until my return trip, after I get paid... but I'll scout for good water on the way, and have a pole and cooler handy. I like the sound of Three Rivers state park. Mid panhandle, up by the Georgia line. I'll be on the lookout for thos famous spring fed limestone sink hole lakes... lots of calcium from the limestone to provide good populations of clams and crayfish for red ears! The gin clear water requires very light line, but I'm ready... just bundled about 20 rods, from 4lb spinners to 40lb tarpon rods... which would also be perfect for whuppin' on some big apalachicola river flat heads! I'll be fishing in the water traps of FL golf courses at some point... they're always full of surprises! Big oscars and ciclids, maybe even a snakehead or two... I'll keep my camera handy!

   And I just discovered the comments area at the bottom of my page... my apologies, I've never gotten that far down the page without clicking on someones pics! I wondered why AOL kept sending me to an empty mailbox here...

Hey Bruce! Love your pics! It's crappie season here in Jackson MS, and the UNREAL warmth of recent days caused me to run full speed off the end of the dock a few days ago... I can report with authority that water is slow to warm! 'Bout had a heart attack! YIKES! Being so far south of the snow, I don't complain... it was GREAT!!! I'll be headed to Pensacola FL for the next full moon, to fish my favorite pond. I'm hoping to put my dear sweet mother, who has been buying her boy tackle for 40 years, onto the womens IFGA for bream on 4lb test. It's swimming now... and I bought her the PERFECT rod for the job, I'll rig a bimini [by IFGA regs!] to 6 lb flourocarbon, and show her where to sneak up and cast. We're having fun planning! Look for us on the cover of Florida Sportsman! Any advice on bedding bream in EARLY spring, for a guy who truly was blessed with the coolest mom ever? I've pulled a couple dozen 2 lb coppernose [wardaddies in FL] from the pond... I'll find her one that's bigger!

Warren outdoors featured "Richmond Mill" today 1/23 and I saw you in a few clips. The place is awesome and I can't wait to get down there and shoot for a record. The fact that the public can access this lake is a treat. I didn't realize how many nice Largemouth were thriving in the lake as well. Its very cold in N.C. this weekend so I didn't get out but we're gearing up....

Thanks for adding me to a great site! I'm a lifetime fan of Bluegill fishing and I have hundreds of photos and testimonials to share. I'm an avid live bait fisherman in and around the Albermarle and Pamlico sounds in North Carolina. Keep up the good work and I look forward to a great 2011 for all anglers.

I keep getting comments from one member that my fish look stunted. I am unable to find on BBG or online any describtion of stunted bluegill with a picture for an example. I would like to make this part of the how to group. Can you either direct me to an example or write a comment, complete with picture?

Thanks Bruce, I look forward to learning more about bluegill from your site. Seeing these pics brings back great memories when I was a kid, hanging my feet over the bulkhead at our house on Lake Livingston (the largest man-made lake in Texas at the time) and catching bluegill until I couldn't reel that big 'ol Zebco any more!

Hello Bruce,

I came across your site; it is a good one. Looks like you are raising some very nice bluegill. Also glad to see you are still chasing wipers. I have missed fishing with you.

I am currently in Topeka finishing up my last year of law school. In May I am going to move back to Montana, take the BAR exam, and start searching for Natural Resources and Environmental Law jobs.

I lived in Jackson Hole, WY and Bozeman, MT from 2004-2008 -- as you can imagine, I spent lots of time on the Madison, Yellowstone, Gallatin, Snake, etc... I love fly-fishing.

Hope everything is great. We should try to schedule a wiper trip this spring before I move.

Take care,

Uriah

Thanks, Bruce! You might not remember, but I got the chance to meet with you briefly at the Pond Boss Conference in Missouri last year. I was an undergraduate student from South Dakota State University at the time, working on a bluegill project under Dave Willis. I have officially migrated south to work on a largemouth bass genetics project in Puerto Rico through Miss. State U.

I enjoy seeing pictures of all the GIANT fish you catch in Pond Boss and online! Hopefully I can get my paws on some of those slobs as well! Take care!

I don't know what happened to my bbg email. I no long get email notifications on my group, comments, etc. Is everyone having this problem, or just me?
I have everything I want to be emailed about checked, and I used to get the emails. Also, I got a new smart phone and have emailed pictures to SharonDian165@bigbluegill.com, but I can't pick them up here. Any instructions?
