[Bream - Sunfish] Suggestion : panfish category / no sunfish category
« on: April 02, 2017, 08:55:35 AM »
All pan fish can be caught on the same lures the same way. In fact most other fish species can be caught using small lures on light tackle and finesse presentations are key to catching the most fish on an outing. As for myself, I love catching large perch, crappie and gills on 6# test line and light action rod along with bass, catfish and snot rockets. The more the merrier !

I  think the various sunfishes have different feeding habits.

For example:

Bluegill prefer a fly pulled along the surface at a steady pace.

Pumpkinseeds will pick things off the bottom more readily.

Green Sunfish will often be tucked tightly into rocks.

Shellcrackers (Redears) are extremely particular and only eat when they feel like it. Very hard to get them to take an artificial in my experience.

You can probably catch all 4 species with some type of grub or crappie tube but they can definitely be targeted specifically based on presentation.

I will add prefixes for all those species in our Other Species boards this afternoon after my cardiac rehab session this morning. :D

I just created the Topic Category [Panfish/Sunfish] I am also thinking that despite the fact they are also Panfish.. I am going to create a [Crappie] category too.

Sounds good Jared and in about a month I'm hoping to have some to put in the Crappie one. (y)

Maybe it's just the lakes I fish, but I don't target any species and catch all species that bite my grubs. Yesterday I caught 36 fish in three hours and that included blue gill, pumpkin seed, bass, yellow perch and roach.

When I found fish, I anchored and cast in a large circle catching mixed species. When the water gets warmer than 48 degrees like it was yesterday, I'll be hitting the shallows versus the 7-8' I caught fish in. Once the spawn ends, I'll be fishing shallow and deeper and catch fish. The average catch last year was over 40 fish (per belt counter), many days over 60 fish and some outstanding days over 100 fish - and all on the same lure and presentation.

Of course the best days included getting into schools of crappie or perch, adding to the majority of fish caught / fish totals. The only time I temporarily stopped catching pan fish was when I targeted bass with larger lures in areas I had caught bass before.

I have a feeling so many categories won't be posted in or read.
