Wow, guys, I just got home from our favorite hybrid sunfish pond and I finally got some on a spoon...a 1/8 oz Swedish Pimple that I worked quickly with occassional snaps and tight- lined it on the drop back. The two hybrids I did catch on the spoon crushed it, and fought like demons possesed. They struck on the 'fall-back' from a rod snap, and made my ul rod double up.
What amazingly powerful fish! I had to 'play them out' and drag-screamin was in order. Got 5 altogether, 3 on the standard Gronaw/slip-sinker/worm rig and two powerhouses on the Pimple.
Bill, you're gonna be proud of me , man! I can now join the Spoonchuckers and get in on all the heavy metal slabbin' that I've been missin out on!
And Bullworm, I finally figured out how to get some of those trophy hybrids....leave Linda at home!
