What do the "B's" in B&B Farms, Maple Syrup stand for?

 Bluegills and Botanicals if you read the fine print. It seemed appropriate, as those two subjects definitely hold a special place in my family's hearts.

I thought I would share a little bit of the maple syrup process, for those who might be curious as to how it's done. I may add additional photos as time permits.

Disclaimer: No Bluegills were harmed during the making of this maple syrup.

My wife and our oldest son, tapping some trees during an unseasonably warm spell…

Macrochirus in the media.

For some time now, I've pondered the possibility of starting a blog dedicated to those special instances when our favorite fish gets to spend a few moments in the limelight. My excuse for having not accomplished this task sooner is disturbingly familiar....not enough time. Well that situation has been remedied, at least temporarily, by my family and I enjoying a long overdue vacation.

So as I sit here surrounded by palm trees, nearly overwhelmed by the smell of sunscreen, with waves…

A show of appreciation.....

For Dick Tabbert. I've never had the pleasure of meeting him face-to-face, but from our dealings otherwise I can tell you that Dick is cut from the bedrock that this country was built upon. I've found him to be modest, unassuming, very knowledgeable, and endowed with a generous spirit. BigBluegill.com wouldn't feel like home without his presence, and we are indeed fortunate to have him as part of our online family. This place wouldn't be the same without him.

I'm asking everyone here,…

Thank you Tony and the pleasure's all mine.

Welcome aboard Tony. Looks like we are off to a good start. There are so many different units out there with the fisherman in mind. You have the basic finders and of coarse the full blown that have anything you can think of then some. I'm hoping we can learn our finders and their potential.

Glad you were spared, sorry for the others.
I'm sure you are aware that accidents and damage occur after the storms pass. People rush to help or just overlook the changed environment.
Be careful.

Tony - do you know how to organize a fly swap?

At 7:52pm on June 13, 2013, David, aka, "McScruff" said…
And I love worms so much, I grow my own.
At 5:33pm on June 13, 2013, David, aka, "McScruff" said…
Thanks Tony. I usually try different techniques based on the location, conditions
and what I've been failing at already. My.primary criteria is water depth, structure and cover, in that order. I mostly fish a large lake, and these are what matters.
If the fish bite hard on a micro spoon, I'll stay with it.
If I move or the bite slows I'll try something else.
I'm equipped to put nearly any TYPE bait in the water. I usually have more crap with me than I can use.
But I do confess, when all else fails.... I'll fall back on a worm.

I didn't think this big warm up would be good especially where some ice has already formed....I don't have to tell you to be careful but I will to satisfy my conscience.....
