PATTERN-RIGGING-PRESENTATION for Bluegill

So you had a great day on the water… you caught many gills or sunfish and you had a specific rigging and a presentation you made to nail em. You are one proud angler! Share that information with us. Describe the conditions the rod, reel and line and how you presented the bait to them. Start a discussion and post pictures of the event. We are interested and that’s why we are here. No rigging is to simple or complex. Some days simpler is better. We are all varied in our skills as bluegill fisherman from the novice to the masters. Even if it’s just sharing your favorite rod, reel and line combination… anglers ask for this information all the time! We could all learn something new.See More

FISH TALES

The thing about fishing and spending time out on the water fishing is that sooner or later an event or events happens within your fishing history that become memorable. Stories that are repeated at the dinner table, campfires or on fishing trip with your buddies. Memories that stand out with you and deserve to be repeated. Share with your friends here at BBG. Start a separate discussion with your fish tale and let it rip!With over 6000 members and everyone having at least a story or two should become very interesting.See More

After doing a little research on lakes within a twenty mile radius of my location, on the DNR Master Angler website and a call to the local DNR office I was motivated and directed to focus for the Master Angler Bluegill from this lake. My experiences previously on this lake are considerable boat traffic from pleasure as well as a lot of…

Hope you don't mind I had a gentleman Marvin Morgan contact me about his Lowrance chirp finder. He like most other are confused trying to read the manual and understand it. I gave him your name since your the best versed on the subject I don't think you'll mind but if you do I apologize..

Slip-I use a  bead between the bottom of my slip floats to cushion the blow it receives  from banging against the split shot when hook setting and/or  popping the float . Those plastic float stems don't split since I've done that .
