So lately I've been doing alot of bobber fishing because of this whole Tennis Elbow thing. I've definitely learned to appreciate the whole panfish family and find myself in awe at times just looking at how beautiful they are. So while Rob is across the pond in his waders in persuit of the giant largemouth who lives there, and next to me is Zach perfecting his fly fishing technique.. I sit there motionless... staring at my bobber with great anticipation. Yes, my bobber and I have become reaquainted in the last month :G Well, I caught a type of sunfish that I had never caught before. I measured it and let it go. It was 9". I don't carry a scale in my backpack, so unfortunately I dont (and will never know) how much it weighed. I came back to the house to discover that what I caught was a Pumpkinseed. The state record is 9.5" @ .75 lbs. So so so close!!! I'll definitely go back there.. I know where she lives and I know what she likes to eat!
