Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

 After another disturbing occurrence of this frightening phenomenon I've decided to share it with you all to see how many others have been affected.

Setting: Beautiful morning at the pond.

Plan: Fried BG dinner.

So here I am fishing away totally oblivious to the EVIL lurking in my trusty Bluegill cooler. Since a couple of the kids are coming for dinner I decide 25-30 would be a good mess.

Aftermath: Just before dark at my cleaning table.

After putting all my gear away and hobbling over to my cleaning table I flip open the cooler and peer in with HORROR!

The 30 BG I kept have somehow grown to 50 chilled fish looking back up at me.... hmmmmmm. After filleting for just a little past FOREVER I look back in the cooler at 75 BG SMIRKING back at me. ARRRGHHHHHH! 

Finally slamming  the lid I run screaming into the house to call the X-files.

I'm not sure what's going on here, but it's not the first time. 

How many of Y'all have had this same experience?

Earl, did you eat those filets yet? I can smell them frying.

 I haven't been doing much of anything for the last two weeks. I got hit by lightening and have been kinda healing up a little!

Holy Crap!  Are you okay? Wow!

The chore of fileting can seem daunting at times but you just have to keep thinking about the end result. Fresh fried gills and whatever sides you prefer, the fish is so yummy, so tasty , sooooo gooood. It is worth the task but if I am feeling tired or rundown and have some fish in the freezer then I may just do a catch and release day. Really depends on how hungry you are for fresh gills, just typing this is making me hungry. Might have to have a catch and eat day tomorrow. LOL
