    Is it me? It seems like I get bigger gills in the fall. I will fish the back of the docks (near shore) and catch some monster gills. In the spring they seem smaller than the fall.

    Might be from them fattening up for the winter months? Just a guess.

    I know what your saying. The gills are fattening up for winter. I am catching gills in the 0.5 to the 2.5 range. They are also fighting harder than usual.

    No doubt that you can fill the freezer full of gill filets in the fall easier than in the spring.

    Yep, they're usually bigger than usual in the fall, I guess getting ready for winter would have something to do with it.
