They are as pretty as they are tasty.
I love catching sunnies and bluegils. They're so pretty!
They also slam a jig pretty hard
I always stare at them a couple good seconds before I release them when creek fishing.
I caught one of them in Vermont. Wicked pretty fish.
It looks a lot like a Texas cichlid
That is a chunky pumpkin! Nice catch!
Kiver (pronounced kivah).
Wow! I need to go fishing. I recently restored (almost completely) an antique spinning reel. The guy said it was about 50-60 years old but now it runs fine. So did you keep it? And if so how'd it taste?
I've always called these pumpkinseeds. VA NC and SC area
Doesn't even look like a freshwater fish.
I saved that for future reference.
