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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
