Went to MacArthur Lake today with my fly rods and Yak. Didn't get out there till after 1130. And of course it started raining as soon as I pulled into the area. So I waited it out and ate my lunch. It didn't last to long and I was on the water. I was throwing a silver and grey clouser on a #4 salt water hook. I had several hits and then hooked up with this nice sized blue gill. He was fun. Not long after that got run off the lake by a thunder storm. But I did get a couple of hours in and had a good time.

Looks like you found some good fishing. The fish that you have there is a Flier. I caught some for the first time in pond that I used to fish just outside of Lillington. I thought that it was some kind of weird Crappie mutation because of the large Dorsal and Anal fins. They are a heck of a lot of fun to catch and a one of the strongest fighting sunfish that I have ever caught.

I love fliers. Caught a couple of them in Texas pond and in Rhodes Pond. Got to love the way they fight.

Your Welcome Eddie- Since I am immersed in Fish Identification these days, thought that I would share. It can certainbly be difficult to tell one Sunfish from another and to make it more difficult some species can hybridize.
