  1. Details: Green Sunfish

    Lots of big bellied greenies tonight. They molested all my bass baits, but really couldn't resist a Nikko caddisfly, though probably any small bait would've ...more worked well tonight. Even caught a greenie barely bigger than my bait. Maybe 2". Rigged on 1/24 oz jig head.

      @ddhtwn It wasn't huge, but it was just so chunky that it looks bigger than it really was. Even really small ones were chunky.

      Yes, it's a Chain Pickerel. See the long, dark "teardrop" under its eye? Only picks have that, big way to distinquish between picks and Northern Pike. ...more Northerns do not have that. @fisherman123
