The coolest sunnie

Sunfish, Mud

Finally able to add a major bucket list species to the lifelist, the Mud Sunfish, Acantharchus pomotis.  Caught in a small, tannin-stained creek in central North Carolina.  Caught another one as well but this one was way too photogenic not to feature.  Definitely my most notable catch as a multi-species angler.

Congrats! Certainly one of the harder sunfish to find.

It's a mud sunfish. It's a very good picture of a mud sunfish. What more can be said?
