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.

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.

A large old table spoon works great to scale them.
