Well, I walked all the way to Lewisville Lake today with the idea of fishing for sunfish (it's a long walk from Old Town to the lake in this heat, but it surely burned some blubber off of me). Just wanted to get out of the house and catch SOMETHING. Hadn't given thought to how much the lake is overflowing. Ended up fishing ON old Mill street and caught a couple sunfish. Kinda weird to catch fish ON a street.
Then on the way home, I tossed my line into a drainage ditch that runs under Cowan and Mill. Caught a surprising number of green sunfish there.
What are some of the odder places you've caught sunfish?
