    Second the notion on the Sunshines. Lake George sunshines were dieting on Sunday morning. Could see the bait balls. Couldn't get anything to eat.

    Hi. I'm from up north. What is a sunshine? I have never heard of it. To me it looks like a fat, hybrid striped bass. These are caught in fresh water? Thanks.

    From FWC:
    Sunshine bass were first produced in Florida by state hatcheries, and all sunshines are still produced and stocked. This is because they are a hybrid of a female white bass and male striped bass that does not occur naturally. Sunshines often have broken stripes on the front half and straight lines on the rear half of the body.

    Thanks. Found it on the FWC site after I posted the question. Pretty cool fish! Unfortunately I don't think there are any in my area.
