It is indeed luck when I catch one.  I'm always surprised.  I did hit a spot earlier this year that was packed with juveniles though.  Probably caught 20 or so in short order.

Sadly I did not look at the forum the last few days so I never connected with Tim. I did sample some nice looking pinewood Carter's at gum swamp pond. Didn't keep them though. I have had a great time got banded pygmy sunfish, black banded sunfish, flier, dollars, warmouth, creek chub sucker, margined madtoms, pirate perch, Red fin pickeral, blue gills, redbreast, blue spots, gambusia, swamp Carter's, sawcheek darters, eastern mudminnows, lined topminnows, tesselated darters, fantails, piedmont darters, bluehead chubs, redlip shiners, dusky shiners, fieryblack shiners, whitefin shiners, maybe a tiny highback chub. A couple other silvery shiners probably satinfins and eastern silvery minnows. Two little stinkpot turtles, a bunch of neat eastern newts with red lines instead of just red spots.
Might try Drowning creek for some swampfish since its only 2 miles from my hotel. Heading north tomorrow with a couple stops near Durham.

Dang, I think you did all right!  Couldn't have done much better than that!

SKS caught 2 mud sunfish in one seine haul in the Tallahassee area in Fla a few years ago. Only ones I've ever seen. I don't recall that anybody really wanted 'em at the time, I think we dumped 'em back. No keepers of sunfish on the team that day.

 

Lucky Dustin needs to get out more, to share his magic.

Agreed haha. I've been trying to get him out for awhile now.

To find muds, pretend you're hunting for dwarf waterdogs ... dig into the leaf litter, branch piles, and roots, then haul it up on shore and pick through.  They're not up in the water column, at least not when humans are nearby.  (But they do get very tame and personable in captivity).
