just bought my first boat and would like to ask for some advice and/or help on where in general to look for sunfish on lakes. i understand that each lake is different, and pressure plays a part but whatever info i can get would be great. I am a pike guy and have a pretty good idea how to fish them but sunnies whether on open or frozen water i am clueless. i fish green lake near princeton and will be trying briggs, julia, mille lacs and others. so thanks in advance and good luck. ice cracking
Find the weedlines and start from there. I have been picking off a few Sunnies on the edges and on top of and in select pockets directly in the weeds. Small plastics tipped with Larvae or maggots have worked pretty good for me but Sunnies will usually hit anything if they're in the vicinity.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
