After thinking long and hard about it, I realized that I like sunfish best of all the freshwater fish. If I couldn't fish for sunnies, I'd probably quit fishing. I know I'm supposed to revere more heavily marketed fish, but I just can't help elevating sunnies to the top of the pleasure pyramid of freshwater fishing.

I have to admit to a similar outlook on life. I have even relegated LM bass to "varmint" classification because they keep tearing up my sunfish rigs mad.gif

Hehe, it is cool different people like different fish. I actually hate sunnies as they always give false "bites" or tear up my bait. But I like that they are always around to keep the kids busy. Heck, I think they have most of them trained at the dock!

I actually love crappies as best panfish, as I love how they attack the jig/minnow when they hit. They are ferocious.

But my fav is smallies.

We were camping Vermilion and the Wally's were too busy eating mayflies to hit the baits so I dug out the fly rod and had a blast catching sunnies off the dock on dry flies.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
