Do you remember what it is like fishing for bream? Many stories on the net will remind you of that simple thrill. You can find information on the best baits for them, how to manage your pond for bigger and better bream, and even how to plant catalpa trees to raise worms for them. You can become a better bream fisherman from the info on the net.

The name "bream" covers a variety of species, from Green Sunfish to bluegill, and Florida has most of them. Florida is a great place to fish for bluegill, and you can find the top 15 lakes for bream there, or concentrate on Lake Panasoffkee. Iowa has good bream fishing and info on the net for bluegill, green sunfish, longear sunfish, orange spot sunfish, pumpkinseed, redear sunfish (shellcracker), rock bass and warmouth.

Louisiana also has good info on the net about fishing and the records for that state. And don't forget South Carolina!

If you want to recapture the excitement of bream fishing, read about it on the net. Even better, get a pole, a can of worms and hit the water!

Most any tackle will work for bream but you cn buy special rods and reels for bream, as well as terminal tackle.

A lot of information on bream can be found in my library of links for Bream Fishing.
