For shallow water fishing,sunfish will be harder to find. The afternoon bite will be the best. Fish by weed/grass beds. Take advantage of the warm spells before the winter and when the sunnies start limiting their movement and become very hard to find. In water bodies that have deeper water, fish can easily be found in water 12 to 16 feet deep holding by ledges and drop offs. Docks in that depth will also be holding fish. The bigger sunnies usually become pretty active during this time of the year.
Side Note: Once winter sets in fish will be holding by brush piles in 17 to 25 feet of water! Slow retrieve and patients will have good results if you can find em.
