Sunfish

Minnesota has several sunfish species, but the most popular with anglers are the bluegill and the pumpkinseed.

Sunfish are particularly prone to stunting. Lakes that have good spawning habitat but not much food can produce swarms of small adult sunnies that never grow larger than four or five inches.
