The usual suspects met at Lynn Creek Marina Wednesday. Since the crappie showed no interest it was up to the sunfish and the rough fish.

I caught a mixed bag of bluegill, green sunfish, longear, bass and catfish. The rough fishermen caught carp and buffalo. I did not see a sunfish longer than 7 inches. The bite for all species was slow from 6AM until sunup, then it stopped.

The cold rain all last week may have set the sunfish back. Also, the retaining wall is under reconstruction at the marina and the noise and splashing of two big backhoes probably did not help.

Seventy years of chasing the elusive sunfish.

Nice gills...thats one of my go-to spots there at Lynn Creek on Joe Pool. Nice size gills hang under the bridge you walk down to get to the marina. Stand on the dock and toss under the bridge then get ready for some "Action" hooked
Katchin krappie...doin surgeries(filleting)...and givin hott grease baths until krunchy and golden brown is what it's all about!!!

"STAY ready for the THUMP"!!!!
