Thanks guys.  It was just shy of 11 inches and biggest gill in over 15 years.

Against my beliefs Im getting it mounted, I have laminated graph paper to get exact measurements on the ice to be able to release and get a replica made....but was left behind at home.  I did remeasure before putting in the freezer and it was right on 11" with the tail pinched.  Now I just have to find a taxidermy shop around here I can trust.

That a saucer there; nice going! Hoping to get on my gill lake this weekend. There are some 10+ gills in there but they aren't built like that. ::) Beauty!

The plastic is micro nuggie from fiskas. 
It is a round one for sure!  I'm glad I have a 10" auger.

I thought I had one today until it flopped on it's side and I seen the dreaded red ear.  >:(   Ended up being 11" fish so a dandy none the less, but I was disappointed it wasn't a bluegill.  :(

That's a beautiful slab gill, congrats.  ;D
