    My sister in law called me and asked me to fish her pond to get some gills out so I loaded my pond boat and drove the 10 min to her house.
    The gills were biting like crazy! Really fat and they put up a fight that was unbieveable! I love fall blue gills! I caught about 20 of these in 30 min. Then my battery went dead.
    I left my pond boat there because I am going to help her out again. Boy what we have to do for family! LOL

    Love to catch those fat 'gills on fly or ultra-light rigs. They fight like redfish.

    Sounds like a lot of fun.
    Kind of looked like a warmouth to me, but I can't see the whole fish real well.
