Sunfishing at Community Boating

We caught SO MANY Sunfish today!

Using some interesting new baits, namely hot dog skins and a flower sugar paste, we were able to catch 24 Sunfish today at Community Boating!

Ryan, our master fisher, caught 11 himself, followed by Kevin with 10!

Although all of the fish caught (and released) were Sunfish, we found many interesting varieties, which we identified with the help of a freshwater fish field guide.

These are some of the fish we found:

-Bantam Sunfish
-Bluegill Sunfish
-Pumkinseed Sunfish
-Green Sunfish

What an interesting spectrum of colors and spots they had! Personally, I hope we can catch a carp next!
