Supa Pans…the video montage

My obsession for panfish knows no limits and manages to blur my big fish focus at times. I have often thought about seeking therapy but usually I just hammer a few hundred of these “gills or sunnies” and the addiction subsides.




This year I did great on the crappie and “ok” on the sunfish, which is the opposite of last year. I was only able to land a few 9’s and 10’s in sunfish class (not the ultra-fabulous specimens in 2009.) but somehow managed to land some slabilicious crappie.

Let this montage stand as homage to my admiration of panfish or a desperate cry for help depending on your point of view. Awesome comments, fantastic rates and just stopping by means a lot to me.

My name is Matt and I’m a fishaholic.

As a kid, I remember buckets of Crappie being cleaned in the basement. They could have been anything, my dad just called them all Crappie. Great video.

Awesome video--I too am an avid gill fisherman, just seems like I can't get enough of landing these fighters on the fly. What did you land your crappie and gills on? Great Post!

Great job on the video! Those are some real nice looking fish! Bluegill and Crappie were my Grandpa's favorite. A little Dixie Fry and some oil and we had a meal!
