Monstergill

Had a great day of ice fishing on one of my favorite ponds close to home. Caught several gill around the 10" mark along with crappie around 12-13" . Day turned out to be very special as I landed the second largest bluegill of my life. My biggest was a 1999 master angler bluegill that also measured 12" The one from 1999 weighed 2.1 pound! I did not weigh this guy but he was not as thick as the "gillzilla" I landed that july day in 1999!
