Can't beat blue gill for eating. And big blue gill are a blast on ultra or fly rods. Smaller Bass are tasty to eat, but I would leave them in to grow for the fun of catching them. Oh yea, wheres this pond? Need any help! :D

take 4 pieces of foil about a foot and a half long. lay 2 pieces flat, butter the top sheet of foil(real butter) then in a large bowl. combine sliced 1" potatoe chunks(2 large ones) slice 2 onions. 1" chunks of bass or bluegill(about a pound). salt and pepper. mix it all up spread it on the buttered foil. add more cubes of butter. about a 1" chunk every few inches and top with more pepper, no more salt.butter another piece of foil lay that on top(butter side down)of the mixture and make a pocket. then take the last piece of foil and put it over the single sheet to finish the pocket.make sure the pocket DOES NOT LEAK. you might even need to use more foil. now lay that on a low fire grill about 10 minutes a side. only flip once. becareful not to puncture the pocket. you will be able to tell it done by pushing a toothpick into it. if theres no resistance its done. if you feel a hard potato let it go a little more. i had this on time camping and i cuuld not stand to eat bass. but this way is GREAT..
you dont really need to use butter on the foil. i use canola oil and it taste the same. the butter was the way i learned to do it.

for gills make a egg wash (one egg +1/4 cup milk. beat together with fork). next the breading: 4 parts flour to 1 part corn meal, salt and pepper to taste, mix well on paper plate or bowl. paper plates work great cause you don't have to wash anything. OK first dredge fillets in flour mix and set aside till all are covered. Next take dredged pieces and dip in egg wash then in flour mixture. Fry in hot oil(around 350 degrees) turning once. I cook mine in a cast iron skillet with about 1/2 -3/4 in veg oil in it. only takes about 45 sec to 1 min a side. don't overcook!!! YUK!!!!! Let cool and enjoy.
