Nice work JB!! Some real beauts there... I too managed to sneak out today, got a hot tip from a good pal. He said the big gills were biting today :) Was the best news I've gotten in a while. Fished from 4-8:30pm. Some real dandy gills were caught today. Not as many as JB managed but got about a dozen total. Kept 5 for a meal. Released 5 females and a few smaller gills. Most fish were 8.5+". Also caught about 5 LMB one being around 16". 5-11' of water.

Went fishing in Waukesha County.  Fish have been pushed out deeper by the cold weather.  In the morning,  couldn't find any fish shallow at all. A little bass action in 10 to 13 ft of water.  Bass fishing was slow, so tried for gills. Fished for really big gills in a lake that has them. Started out using 2 inch lures like I usually do there. Nothing happening . Downsized to 1 1/2 inch lures. Got 1 big gill but mostly small bass. Tried a little smaller lure 1 1/4 inch with waxie on. Covered many acres of water. Lucked into a pod of giant gills. Caught over 25 gills, only 2 were under 9 inch, 8 1/2 and 8 3/4. I know it sounds like B.S. Can't blame anybody for doubting. There is a sticky bottom spot on the lake that has many large gills, and the small gills wouldn't hit the 1 1/4 inch lure. Released all the females chock full of eggs. Also released all males over 10 inch. Kept 8 males 9 to 10 inch. Will post pic of the kept fish with a ruler later. Pic here of one of the females eggs before released.  My phone battery died before I could take a pic of the biggest female full of eggs, exactly 11 inch. Was upset about that!

Didn't mean to come off as a smart A$$ just didn't know if you were new to fishing or new to the area.

Just got me a little boat so I'm not to familiar with the Waukesha/Racine lakes. Thank though for the input
