Nice work Janes,,,,,thanks for your post!  I tell you, Warmouth might be the best eating sunfish out there!  This reminds of the early springs in the rice fields of southern Louisiana........we cleaned hundreds every year.......

Thanks for the welcome Johnathan,
Seems like I always end up salt water fishing when I am down there. I am definitely going to do some freshwater fish when we are down there in June.

Welcome John. I will second what David said. Hard to target alone, they just kinda come with the mix. Definitely more likely to catch in the swamps and backwaters. There are plenty in the Savannah area. I live in SC now but I'm from GA and still fish around the Savannah River. It's a big river and there are plenty of back swamps and small creeks that run into it. Those slower waters are great for bass, crappie, bluegill, warmouth. There is also some great Red Breast waters around there. Either way it's a beautiful area to fish.

I catch warmouth here in SC while fishing the backwaters for bluegill.
My avatar pic is a warmouth caught in the S. Edisto river near Aiken, SC.
I don't target them specifically, though, and I don't know anyone who does. They just kinda fall in the mixed bag of fish I catch, although always in the back bays and swamps

Not too sure how good the Warmouth fishing is here in MI as I don't normally target them. I did catch a nice one yesterday while fishing for Crappie. I'm studying up on them so I can try the right techniques for catching more. May be especially helpful when I go visit family in Savannah GA as I think they have plenty down there.
