"I've been out doing the same thing a few times, when I can. Honestly, though, the Hex Hatch is in full swing right now.  Do you have any areas that have a Hex Hatch, John?  It can been a blast fishing that one."

Christmas Bluegill Wishes

I would like to extend a sincere and heartfelt gratitude to all of the members of BigBluegill.com.

I know I've been lacking in posts and pictures lately, but the demands of my family and my business render me an observer most of the time.  I read every post and enjoy every picture.  Every big bluegill caught feels like I landed it myself.

I hope that all of you have an amazing Christmas, and a great new year.  2016 will surely be full of great catches, great…

Many of us drifted away from bluegill as we aged.  We became jaded, and influenced by those around us.  We were told that…

Mr Bruce, been awhile since we've communicated so though I'd just say have a good spring and better summer.

Please don't re-post with the names reversed........Bob-O

Oh if the folks here only knew our history, there would be many chuckles.
