8.5" Pumpkinseed Sunfish caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Saturday May 19, 2012 at 18:30 near Walled Lake in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a Drop shot #8 hook & redworm a Worm

Water temperature Walled Lake about 68-70 degrees between 6:30 & 7:30pm. I was able to catch 1 largemouth bass (previous post) and 6 more sunfish (shown here) male pumpkinseeds about 8 inches. All were caught on a drop shot using #8 hook & redworm. Interesting still no bluegill or females. All fish caught on extremely long casts at the edge of weedbeds where the firm bottom transition allows for the proper spawning habitat – grouped very close together. Looks like even though I got an early start it may be challenging to get my second Master Angler award for pumpkinseed this year.
