In my location of New Jersey, panfish include a variety of Species. I enjoy a Multi species outing either fishing alone or with friends or Family members. Bluegill, Pumpkinseed, Red Breasted Sunfish, Bullheads, pan sized Stream Trout, White and Yellow Perch, Crappie, a few Rock Bass, a few Green Sunfish is what I encounter. All are welcome to join and archive their techniques and Species List .
This group does not have any discussions yet.
Bruce-Very pleased to hear the Juaniata /Susky Smallmouths and Rock Bass are coming back nicely! This year I'm hoping I can get a few chances to fish the Delaware River which is only an hour to an hour and a half from me. Good Smallmouths and BIG Red Breasted Sunfish. I'd like to explore the Rock Bass in the D River also.
Ah I see you got the the bluegill killer Jeff Abney in the group man that fella can absolutely burn the gills and crappie up.
Thanks for the invite John haven't had a chance to get out lately but that is going to change here shortly. I live here in south east Virginia so I am pretty much surrounded by water salt fresh, brackish. We have a pond on our property near Martinsville Va but do a lot of fishing in our county reservoir beaver dam and the Chickahominy river on the upper James river look forward to sharing some pics and info with you guys.
At one time I used to target them on The Juniata River. My buddy and I used to make a 5-mile float and we each brought home 15 to fillet. The river flows into the Susquehanna River near Harrisburg. About 10 year ago contamination put a hurting on the smallmouths and rock bass. They are both making a nice comeback.
Welcome aboard Bruce! Looking forward to seeing those Jigs! Gotta ask you ; do you encounter Rock Bass a lot ? Very seldom do I see them and would like to target them to learn about them. I have caught a few when I find and Fish the proper Rockpiles.
Thanks for the invite, John. Within minutes of my home here in PA, I can get into perch, bluegill, sunfish, rock bass, and crappie. I've been tying some jigs for them and I'll try to post some photos tomorrow. They are nothing fancy, but they are functional.
Green SF have always been incidental for me and brother Greg. Learning to target them would be a difficult, or at least time consuming, study I should think. Would like to hear more about the characteristics of the Green Sunfish. I know them to be Aggressive and willing to hit big Lures with their Big Mouths when I encounter them. I have only caught about 4 in my Life and Greg 2 that I know of.
NJ classifies Green Sunfish as invasive, but I've never seen enough to consider them "TOO" prolific and hurting the fish balance. It's something I'd like to talk with about to a New Jersey Fish Biologist or Fish and Game representative though!
One of my unusual catches a few years ago: Here's a first for me; a 13" Crappie on a Honeysuckle berry I found on the ground. In the photo you can see the little berries i used on a32nd oz. orange jig head.
Glad you like McScruff! The Hens were again more prolific and around 5-5.5" Trying to answer the question, ....at what temp does live Bait NOT become the only way to get Pannies to bite and be caught.
