Myself and Mike "USMC-GY" made a quick trip to a local creek and we got into a bunch of nice Greens. We fished from 11:30am till 3:00pm and the bite was good. The creek was in excellent condition due to all of the resent rain. The water was muddy with good current. We caught about 25 nice fat Greens in the 7 inch range. Rounding out the catch were a couple of nice Redear in the 8 inch range and some fat Bluegill in the 7 inch range. Fish were caught in 2 to 4 feet of water. Worms were the bait of choice, with both bottom and float techniques being used. All fish were released to fight again. A great afternoon of creek fishing. It just don't get any better. fish

Nice catching Banker and Mike...well done! thumb

Hit a creek up here last Sunday and the greenies were being voracious!
Love how aggressive these jokers can be at times...

Nice Greens guys. Wonder when the water is going to stay clear for awhile. Checked and fished some area creeks this past week and man not only were the banks muddy they were slippery as well. Also the vegetation has really grown up around the creeks. Be careful where you step!



Side Note: Are the Greens spawning and do they spawn with the rest of the sunfish?

Laker...in regards to whether they're spawning...up here I'd say definitely.
Fished the same creek this past Sunday again...full moon by the way...and I am certain they're bedding.
As to whether they spawn with the rest of the sunfish...time wise here...also yes...just different area of the same creek.
I've been catching a variety of sunfish from this creek...different parts of creek are holding different varieties. But lately all seem to be spawning...very fat and aggressive.
Here's a few more greenies from Sunday...choking the roadrunner...and an example of another variety from about 100 yards upstream in some cleaner water...

Thanks Curtis,"Dawg's Neighbor" and "Jonesy_84" for the replies. cheers Curtis: The spawn is on in our area. A lot of greens I have been catching are super fat and loaded with eggs. They spawn the same time as the Bluegill and other sunfish. eeks "Dawg's Neighbor": Those are some fatties. Good job. clap "Jonesy_84": PM me anytime you are ready. There are a ton of fly rod records that are wide open. coolio

Love those Greens. Nice fish guys.




Side Note: Have you ever caught a cross between and Green and a Warmouth?

Nice fish. Congrats. Question for you sunfish guys: assuming a bottom rig is your primary technique, when, what condones, do you go to a float setup?

I usually throw one with a float and one without to see what is out there. If gills are in an area they will hit your bait within 30 seconds.
