Interesting Fred. Iíve fished Honeoye for a very long time. Thereís a good population of gills, but it gets hammered hard. Maybe a size and reduced limit would help foster some big old gills.

Iím no fisheries biologist.just my thoughts.

I think they should require fish over 9Ē to be thrown back and get rid of the limit.  Cull the dinks.
Iíve fished Silver and Honeoye and they are both loaded with dinks.

Spring, fall and winter there. No sense trying to fish it in summer.. early spring yields some of the biggest sunfish Iíve ever seen. Winter can ...at times....give up some huge gills. But, over the past 5-10 years, size is much more difficult to come by. Not laying blame...just saying.

I agree 100%. Silver has a huge population of decent panfish. If anything, just lower the limit a bit. I get nervous any time the state tries to fix a problem that doesn't exist. Why the he-- does everyone have to have the biggest and best of everything? There are a lot of folks that feed their families with the fish they catch. With the road this country is headed down, It will be even more important.

agreed! I feed my family at least once a week on catch too.

id bet its a change made from a small group of no harvesters types that are just yelling the loudest so they think that's majority thinking.   
some fishermen tell lies,  this one doesnt need to

Hereís an interesting read  regarding response to their survey.
https://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/fish_marine_pdf/sunfishanglersurveytb.pdf

I find it interesting that they sent the survey to their 147,000 subscribers and that only 1400 answered. If Iím reading it correctly, thatís a pretty apathetic reaponse.
