8.8" Pumpkinseed Sunfish caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Saturday June 02, 2012 at 08:30 near Walled Lake in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a Drop shot #8 hook & redworm a Worm

I am back on the north end of Walled Lake. Caught a dozen pumpkinseeds & bluegills 8- 8 3/4 inches (but short of our 9inch target, largest shown here) and four 10-12 inch largemouth (see next post). These sunfish were almost all females. This is interesting for me as the males are shallow for a couple weeks but females move in and out as water temperature varies within the acceptable spawning range. I am glad to have found these females so I can establish a yearly pattern on this lake in order to find the largest fish. This one isn't the longest, but look how fat! Water temperature was about 76 degrees F between 8:30- 11:30am.
