Figured we would easily get limits of legal eyes. Wrong.Only eye was 7" and caught on a blade. That perch is 13" long for reference.

1Perch, 3 crappie, 5 smallies, 2 drum, 1 bullhead, 1 walleye, 4 gills.

I lost 3 monster carp, saw 1 it was easily 15 lbs actually broke it off using 6lb nano. 2 others were halfway to spooling me b4 they happily popped off.

Bah, there's only 1 species that mattered out of the ones you listed: crappie. Undersized and trash fish don't count. ;D But it is indeed an monumental feat to catch all those species at Barr. ;)

Too much work for too little meat. I have never filleted a gill and can't remember the last time I kept one. But gills are tasty.

Better than gill tacos is gill salad (like tuna salad): microwave until they turn white and carefully fold in your mixins (mayo, S&P, onion, etc), toast, lettuce and oh boy!
