Bill, those were pretty fish! What is the technical name for a stumpknocker? I am trying to figure out if we have those down here or not. What did you do with Don?

Benjamin , I think they are spotted sunfish , being a fishmonger doesn't leave him much time for fishing , make hay when the sun shines . This has been a off year for both of us

The meat between the shoulders on a stumpknocker seems to be somewhat firmer than other sunfish

Bill, back there in S Carolina we would call that fish a robin red breast..a very pretty fish and fun to catch, back home growing up i used to have a johnson century and a johnson 100 spinning reel and throw 1/4 and 1/2 ounce yellow and white schisters (spelling) and dropping along the edge of the river with a cork and a cricket about 3 feet under in a one man canvas boat(home made) wasn't bad either....larry(da bandit)

edit: btw that is a great looking creek as you call it , It reminds me of the LITTLE PEEWEE RIVER has runs real close the Great city of Dillon, sc where i use to fish all the time. I like that black water. Has anyone ever tied a set hook to a posion ivey branch :o

Bandit, I just caught your response about the poison ivey! I have never tried that, and I think I'll pass. I've never fished the Little Peedee, but I've whacked quite a few deer and turkeys off it's banks down in Marion county. It is a pretty river. If you grew up in Dillon, that might explain why ya'll had a community computer. It is all that South of the Border money! :lol:
