Chasing Little Fellas

Saturday, October 19, 2013 , , 10 Comments



I am a big fish guy: I dream of Muskie, Tarpon, and Permit. Yet I also like a challenge, and to explore when fishing. In the past when I have walked along the Wakarusa River I have always seen countless small fish darting to and fro, curious what they were I decided to fish for them. I put on a tiny mysis shrimp pattern and caught a ton of these little guys. Countless were caught but here a few pictures.

Nothing wrong with chasing a few sunfish ,no pressure just pure fun!

Love to fish the ponds and slack waters for Sunfish, Bluegill, etc. Lots of fun and hardly ever a skunk. Looks like you enjoyed yourself. Can't beat that!

Nothing wrong with chasing the little guys. Done some of that myself.

Which rod?

That sunfish is my all time favorite of all the bream species. It colors are outstanding!!!Thanks for sharing

Catching the little guys is a good time. Plus every once in a while something a bit bigger will surprise you. nice little fish!

Thanks everybody! They may have been small but caused a smile for sure.

Those Longear Sunfish are beautiful fish. Wish we had some around here.
