the easiest way to catch this fish is pkg of size 8 long shank hook a 15 lb test spool of line and a loaf of white extra thin slice bread cut one slice of bread in 16 pieces roll one piece into one ball and split in 2 and roll each into ball throw one in water one on hook & fish necessary for first one in the water watch and see first one dissapear if it doesn't dissappear but goes to the bottom without moving, no fish around. if it dissappears fast stay and fish. 1/16 at a time 2 pieces one for you one for the fish. this is fun 25 pieces of bread times 16 = 250 + 150 = 400 baits for you and 400 for fish and a wonderful time. from one loaf of extra thin bread $1?size 8 long shand hooks $2?15 lb test line $2?=$5 normally you hand casting distance . normally you can see the fish that you want to catch . they are so close to the bank but can get huge?

Worms, worms, worms!!!! Nightcrawlers (cut into pieces), maggots, meal worms, and angel worms all work well for these scrappy little sunfish. Make sure your hooks are small and suitable sized for this fish which seldom grows over 10 inches.

CAUGHT ABOUT FIFTEEN 3/4 POUND TO ONE POUND PUMKINSEED. WE WERE FISHING THE SAVANNA RIVER ON THE S.C. SIDE. THEY WERE HITTING SMALL RED WORMS AND MINNOWS IN ABOUT 3FT OF WATER UNDER BOBBERS.

these are trash fish and annoying when fishing for bass and they dont stop biting

Look for the pumpkinseed's spawning beds in late spring and early summer. They guard the nests so aggressively, they attack bass plugs. I have caught some nice ones on a 3 1/2 inch rapala, and they can be caught on bass-sized skitter pops.
