they are fun to catch i have not caught any that big on houston
either although you would think that the big ones from
conroe would come down the west fork from conroe and establish
in lake houston.

Not enough rocky structure to overwinter on in Lake Houston?

I know they like feasting on those invertebrates that live in all the nooks and crannies of the rocks.

i guess each of us needs to carry a rock to the lake each time we launch and
soon we will have enough. Plenty of small to mid sized sunfish in Houston.

Tons of smaller fish means two things; not enough predators to thin out the population, and not enough food supply for them to grow to large sizes.

I bet the numbers of larger bass in Conroe have as big a impact, maybe bigger, on the size the bluegill can grow to as the rocky structure and available food.
