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.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
