I would be happy to answer your question fish wrangler but you really need to be reading your fishing regulations booklet. You will find the complete answer to your question within the first couple pages of the regulations booklet.

I agree with Any-Luc. Your first stop should be the Ill. fishing regs. You can get a copy next time you go to Bass Pro or just log on to the Ill. DNR website.

I was fishing up north at Three Lakes Wisconsin on the boat and float tubing...
I caught a lot of the bluegills (not only those but also crappies and perch, big ones and small ones), some of them were badly bitten by those big bass, muskies or pikes or whatever is swimming in there. When I catch one and looking at one makes u wonder what a life he has and I wouldn't wanna be a bluegill around there....
Up there they do use those panfish to catch bass. I never tried it as I don't wanna be waiting too long for one....

If we could just add a self destruct mechanism if the bait is taken by one of those ugly Green Fish.

I remember reading something where you can only use the gill if it came from that lake. You are not allowed to transport gills from one lake to another. I would check the regs though.
