So one of my dad's workers went fishing and brought me some fish...I have no clue about fresh water fish or whatever....he said one is blue gill? Thanks for the help

Sunfish, Bluegill, and Bream looks like.

Quick like ninja! Thanks! Any kind of special filleting stuff I need to know or no just go at it

head'em, gut'em, fry'em up, if they are thick, make some cuts in the thicker meat to help the fry'in process

good eats!

They're all brim. Looks like shell crackers and bluegill.

Wow, you guys are lucky you can eat them! Up here all the lakes and ponds are polluted that I bet if you ate one you would most likely come down with a disease in the near future. Amazed that they can even survive in our lakes and ponds.

That there's some nice bass....

williamwallus 07-16-2014 07:45 AM

Ew I wouldn't eat those lol

Maybe you have clean water in SC. I have a house in Nebraska and bluegill are nothing more than trophy fish. Well.. all fish up there are hahaha

Few fish that I would rather catch than a big bull 'gill on a lightweight rod. I find it is easier to fillet gills than it is to gut and scale them. Easier to eat too. :thumbsup:

people commercially fish them up here on champlain sometimes close to 3buks a pound for big ones. filet is the way for me don't like bones and scales. sunfish up north, bream in the south and a bunch of subspecies

Fillet, skin, fry, enjoy! Bluegill are delicious and sporty.

Up here also referred to as kivers as a generic term.

A large old table spoon works great to scale them.
