Hey there's nothing wrong with bluegills. You can get bigger ones if ya get lucky too!
My largest fish when I was younger was a carp with corn at Beck.

Ask lots of questions, the people here are very cool and will answer everything. :D

Welcome to the site. Don't be afraid to ask questions and also don't forget to read old posts to get an idea of what has worked for others in the past on the body of water that you plan to fish.

Sounds like you are starting to get interested in fishing with lures. A good starting place would be jigs and soft plastics. And maybe a few light spinnerbaits(1/8 or 1/4 oz.) Would be good for beck from shore. Good luck out there, and check out those old posts from last year around this time. Lots of good stuff in there.

First of all avoid all the Goose shit. It's everywhere. If you're new to fishing then start off with some crappie fishing. Beck lake has thousands of crappie. I throw a mini-mite under a bobber. Spray the mini-mite with some bang shad aerosol spray. The bobber and the mini-mite can be 6 inches to 18 inches apart. Cast and drag in little by little or a sharp pull and reel. Let it sit for a couple of seconds and Voila! Fish on! I catch hundreds of them this way. white with chartreuse head mini-mite is my favorite. This time of year I'd use a spinnerbait for bass. I like the war eagle white with a little bit of black in the skirt and tinsel. 3/8 oz is plenty. Biggest bass I caught out of beck was a 3lb 8oz. Go to Skokie Lagoons for bigger bass ad Walleye. Remember Goose shit is still shit and it smells yucky.

Hey man, welcome to the site! I don't know about Beck Lake, but I've had good success at Twin Lakes using a Nitro Crappie Trailer on a #6 Eagle Claw long shank hook, about 2 feet under a slip bobber with some split shot about 5-6 inches above the hook. You're guaranteed some nice panfish with this set-up. Good luck!!!!!
