Catching Shellcrackers in a Hidden Pond Deep In The Woods
Folks, I went down to the lake on this windy day, and decided to venture out into the woods. To my surprise I found a hidden pond! I had a blast catching these fish, and I hope you have a blast watching! Have a good one folks, and God bless!
Not just any old “bream:” It’s a redear sunfish, a.k.a. shellcracker.
A one-pound redear is a perfect match for a 3-weight fly rod. Often called shellcrackers, they fight like a snapper, holding boldly sideways, all fins flaring and pulling like their life depends on it.
