Bluegill & Other Sunfish

Bluegill and other sunfish are here in good numbers and there are some quality fish to catch too.  Most of the sunfish will run smaller, but if you sort through them, you should be able to find some fish that are big enough of a fish fry.  Most anglers that fish for panfish here will target the crappie, but you can often find some quality bluegill mixed in with the crappie too, so don’t be shocked if you catch some decent crappie when fishing with smaller hair jigs while crappie fishing.  The spring spawn is definitely the best time to find some of the better quality sunfish in this lake.
