Been on fish pretty good lately. Fished a rod & reel tournament last weekend for a children's home (take a kid out for a day of fishing and they compete to see who does the best) put 39 catfish in the boat and got most fish, total weight and second for
Say anything you want about green sunfish, but they sure believe in themselves and try hard.
Yeah. That one tried to eat a mouse fly. A carp tried to eat that fly too, craziest shit I’ve ever seen. I didn’t believe it until the two friends I was fishing with both exclaimed “that was a fuckin carp!” Never felt so bummed about missing a fish.
This one didn’t even hit anything big. But he bent that 3 weight fiberglass fly rod halfway down into the cork and had me on the reel, taking drag. About the most fun I’ve had fishing for anything.
But don’t think I’m one of those folk that don’t use gear. I like a spinnerbait too.
Apparently green sunfish don’t care what size it is.
