Sunfish question..

5 posts in this topic

Ok, the spot I'm on (in my wheeled house), the first day there, I caught a few pretty nice sunnies. I didnt have alot of time before dark, but after dark I only caught 1 crappie.

The next day, went out and spend a little time. Only caught small sunnies, but quite a few. Again, at night, only 2 crappies.

So, would you move? Or stay another day and hope the bigger sunnies move back in?

well was there a weather change from day 1 to day 2 that could make the bigger ones move ...was day 1 a weekday and 2 a weekend ? what im getting at is was there more people on the ice making a lot of noise for day 2 but what im trying to say is what was different about day 2 there has to be something to make the big ones move out from where they did so you just need to find out what that was and you need to deside if you think the big ones will come back to that spot or not .... but if you where catching them there unless it is really really shallow they would should come back at some time

On the subject of sunfish. I was fishing in about 24 ft. of water and the sunfish would only hit really small jigs. My question is, how do you get your little jig down faster because the school moves out fast. Do you put on weights?

put a weight above it like 2 foot or more if the water is really cleer will be a little bit harder to feel it but if they are hitting hard it wont matter

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
