Sometimes you never know what's on the other end of the line. Today I thought maybe I had a big sheepie pulling on my line but it was just a bit different pull. Got it in and under the wad of weeds was my biggest gill ever. I've caught a couple 10's before but this one taped out at 11.25"! The pic doesn't do it justice with my big'ol body in the background, but it's the first gill I could literally get my whole thumb in its mouth with ease. Just an amazing fish & hopefully she breeds a bunch just like her!

Yeah the only way I can describe the size of it is if you look at how small my fist is compared to the fish! Would take nearly 3 of my fists to cover the length of that thing. I couldn't even muster up a smile. I just sat there looking at the thing in amazement. Never occurred to me to mount it which I might have if I thought of it....but I'm glad she's still swimming. Fish that size I'd guess takes 8-10 years to grow to that size. That's dodging a lot of diamond jigs tipped with waxies!!!

Wow!

My son-in-law would've had a fit if I caught and released a specimen of that quality. He gives me grief for all of "big" the fish that I release. I tell him, they're hanging on the walls of my memory. LOL!!

You Sir, have my respect, on a great C&R of a true monster Gill!!
