The sunfishes are among the most colorful and common fishes in North America. They are found in freshwater habitats across the continent and the larger species—bluegill, redear sunfish, crappie, and rock bass—are a favorite with anglers both for their tenacity and for how easy it can be to catch them. For many anglers, it’s the very first type of fish they ever caught, bringing back memories of lazy summer afternoons at the local fishing hole with with a rod, bobber, and a can of worms.

Joseph R. Tomelleri are reproduced here all in relative scale.
