Went to go see if I could catch some gills an didnt disappoint, started at 830am and finished at 12 ended trip with some good solid fish, biggest right at 9inch or so, all males except 1 female full of eggs caught 2ft an less water off lay down piles off edge of bank in shade. BAIT red worms under float and small jig under float kept some for a fish fry. I have been really getting into gill fishing an man it's fun. Ready for the big ones to move in.
