BLuegill Illinois Heartland Outdoors 2016

This is our cover for June, 2016.

Drake Elam, 3, of Collinsville was happy to catch this farm pond fish on a family outing.

We decided it had all the elements we like … except for a Cubs hat. But this is an outdoors magazine, not a baseball fan magazine. So the Cardinals hat was fine, given the big fish, happy kid and overall feel of the picture.

Competing publications may sell out with pictures sent to them by boat dealers. We do not. Maybe we are not smart enough, but my feeling is we should feature the people who read the magazine.  Enough soap boxing.

Thanks to all who sent in pictures. We will have many more bluegill images in our July issue and there are plenty in June, as well.

The June issue should be available with fine advertisers now. So get a copy. Read. Admire Drake. Subscribe.

And start sending catfish pictures for the July cover. We’ve got some good entries, but there’s always room for more.

Our selection gets bragging rights and a free subscription.

Thanks again to all who participated. It was fun to see all those big bluegill and smiling faces.




Now Thats Awesome!!Congrats to the young angler.
