Name: Gill Chinook Height: 6’5″ Weight: 250 lbs. Favorite Food: Brats & Hamburgers
|Introduced on March 20, 2012, the Lakeshore Chinooks mascot initially didn’t have a name. A contest was announced that allowed our fans to name the 6-foot salmon.
After announcing the contest, Chinooks fans submitted over 300 name ideas. The field was narrowed to the top three submissions: King, Gill & Sammy. Over 800 people voted and a name was chosen: Gill! Ever since, Gill has been entertaining fans at Kapco Park and throughout the community!
Although his actual date of birth is unknown, Gill celebrates his birthday every year at Kapco Park around June 11th with his mascot buddies and Chinooks fans.
Gill’s popularity has grown the past five years and regularly makes appearances throughout Southeastern Wisconsin. The Chinooks have also done a number bobbleheads of Gill over the years.
In November 2015, Gill announced his candidacy for President of the United States running on behalf of the newly formed Fish Party. He also won the Wisconsin Primary for the Fish Party in April of 2016.
