    cherell and i headed to a local sunfish mecca friday evening and boy did it pay off all the sweat blood and tears were well worth the bounty. heres a few pics to show off our catch. we kept 32 in all we split with 16 a piece and when they were all cleaned i had almost 3 lbs of meat.most of the fish were caught on waxies and red worms with few being taken on small chartruese twisters. the pic with the fish lyuing on a 7lb bag of ice used for scale. all of the fish averaged 7-9".

  4. Have a feeling I know where you were at. Smaller upground Res, but bigger than the one next to it. If not, they are tearing them up at another one I know of. Had a buddy telling me how they were killing them at a local spot, catching upwards of a hundred 7" plus gills in a few hours. I ran into him last Sunday afternoon when he was done and sure enough, they had about 100 big gills in the cooler.
