Do you love big bluegill?
Hey People -Wanted to tell you all that the Green Sunfish and the Warmouth are both considered 'potentially dangerous' species in New Jersey.Was reading through the 2010 New Jersey Fish and Wildlife Digest and these two'criminals' were listed along with 8 others.According to the state because of their bigmouths they are too competitive to the other smaller mouthed native Sunfishes like Blue gills and Sunfish.The state wants anglers to kill these fish and send specimens into their department.
Curious if those more learned than me agree to the states thinking on this. I was looking forward to catching and releasing both these species.Never caught a Green Sunfish and only one Warmouth in my life I think.
UPDATE 8/21/12 : I have since caught a few Greenies in NJ but still haven't seen Warmouths.
