Gills, some of the best tasting fish there is.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an  well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, A fishing pole in one hand, beer in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming \"WOO HOO, what a ride!

Most Gills have a thick fillet compared to other small fish.  I prefer Crappie, but will get good meat off a 7" gill.  A 7" Crappie goes back.

of coarse bluegills are good eating and they have a good slab of meat on em too anything under 7" is a pain to clean or over 24 bluegills are just a pain to clean

'gills & sunnies can't be beat.  I cover in heavily peppered flour, dip in a beaten egg (egg won't stick right to a fish, but will to flour), then dip the egg covered fish into plain (unseasoned) bread crumbs.  You can add some cayenne to the bread crumbs if you like a little heat..  Man!!!!! ...deeeeelicious!  Can't be beat for a Friday fish fry.

Good eating from open water, unbelievable from hard. Haven't tasted a fish that wasn't better tasting when caught during the winter

Gills are very good to eat. They are one of my favs. I do mine with butter and onions rapped in tin foil on the grill. I also do them in what i call homemade fish sticks. Awesome that us all i could say about them. Good luck!!!

Gills are very good table fare.  My favorite way to cook them is rinse fillets with water, dredge fillets in flour, next dip fillets in beaten eggs, next dip fillets in finely ground Ritz cracker crumbs and fry, YUMMY.  As to catching them I prefer a horizontal presentation like a Gill Pill, or Ratfinkie.

The best there is,have eaten and cleaned thousands over 50 years of ice fishing.I'm blessed with a great lake that has giant gills,9 plus inches,that are true bulls.If you like to eat gills buy an electric knife and enjoy !
