    Yes it does!

    I've noticed a lot of LFS getting these guys in with their feeders and giving them away for free cause half of them don't know what they are ;)

    Nice! I would love to stock my pond with free sunfish!! To bad the only way to get lots where I live is from fishing with a really small hook! There's no sain netting here...

    I've never had one though I heard they're great fish but require a lot of space... Their cold water as well, fun part begins, the research! :) We have a lot of articles you might find very helpful. Good Luck :)
