TenkaraBum Challenge - Redear Sunfish
by Levi Cain
(Blanchard, OK, USA)
size 16 black killer bugger
I wasn't honestly targeting Redear Sunfish when I caught this guy but was sure happy when I had it in hand and noticed it was actually a Redear sunfish instead of a bluegill, because I was 2 seconds from tossing it right back into the water thinking I had another bluegill.

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
