SUNFISH OF THE IPSWICH RIVER
PANFISH ARE NOT EASY TO IDENTIFY
We have 5 species of sunfish in the Ipswich and we hope to show you how to tell them apart. It adds to my fishing experience when I know what I am catching.
Rather than call all of the panfish we catch as “sunnies” why not keep a count of our success of catching all the species in the River. Click on their names and see a picture for each. Note the black spot behind the eye on on the margin of the gill. We do not yet have a picture for Banded Sunfish.
