Usually during the winter months the sunfish are less active. Sunfish usually move to deeper water in the winter and hang around brush piles,ledges,and grass beds. If the winter is a super cold one and the water temperature is on the cold side sunfish will not move hardly at all. The bite is also non aggressive druing the winter months. Use smaller pieces of worm and have patients. If fishing shallow creeks,ponds,or small lakes try to find brush piles by the deepest parts. Sunken timber and down tree limbs usually hold sunfish during the winter months. If the creek has good flow try to fish outside the current. Spring thru early November are usually the good sunfish months.
