Well, decided to take a bit of a break from chasin whisker fish and took the ol fly rod out to a lake north of KC that is a "Trophy Blue Gill Lake." Its actually in MO, but the length limit on the gills is 8". Ya, they have a lenth limit on the gills, and the creel is 6 per angler. Needless to say its a lot of fun to fish with light tackle, especially a fly rod bc they just hammer the flies and are a blast to bring in. Had trouble really finding a pattern with them, and they werent bunched up at all. Caught some in 8-10 ft of water, some in 2 ft. Looks like some were makin their beds for the spawn and others havent moved from the deeper water yet (68 degree water or so). Of all the fish we caught, only probably 8 of the gills were under 8" Anyways here's a pic of the few we kept.
