My buddy Ed from Ed's guide service fishes almost every day. He normally bait fishes with shad but if he catches a sunfish he hangs onto it. We were in a pretty constant bite on Sunday when he pulled a sunfish out of the bait tank. He cut off the dorsal and decided to give it a shot. We knew it would take a while to get bit and it did but it was the best fish of the day! He let the fish play with it until it finally buried the rod...

I guess Striper like blue gill. I've caught them on cut blue gill when I was catfishing.

I use them at PK when I can't find shad. They work but not as good as threadfins, plus they attract LM Bass more.

Hybrids love small sunfish.

IMHO-- the best hybrid bait ever. I have never used them in a lake with stripers , but I would bet they are deadly.
Way more energy that bluegill.

That is an awesome striper! Ed used them before when shad was hard to find. He likes to put one on or a big shad if he catches one. You have to wait a little longer to set the hook but the results speak for themselves! As actively as striper feed, I’m sure every small fish is on the menu!

Fish are opportunistic feeders, you would be hard pressed to find a fish of any species that won’t suck down a live sunfish. I bet a tank full of 2-4” ones would tear up the striper, I catch a lot of striper and hybrids on sunfish and big shiners in the spring. Catch a lot of sandbass on the smallest ones, and crappie will tear up a 2-3” sunfish.

I was finally able to put together the full video of the last trip! You have to love spring fishing! The fish are hungry, super responsive to thumping and easy to catch! These fish didn't tap the bait, they slammed it! This is my favorite time of year for fishing!
