Free Talk: Join the Panfish Craze!
CONCORD, N.H. -- The "panfish" craze is sweeping New Hampshire. Join avid panfish angler and fisheries biologist John Viar as he shares some of the secrets to "panfishing" at a free talk on Thursday, May 3, at 7 p.m. at New Hampshire Fish and Game Department Headquarters, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, N.H. Even veteran anglers will enjoy hearing Viar's insights on strategies for success in pursuing these familiar and tasty fish. "Panfish" include black crappie, bluegills, pumpkinseed sunfish and white and yellow perch, so-called because of their shape (a nice fit for the frying pan), along with being excellent table fare.
"Fishing for black crappie and giant bluegills isn't just for young anglers anymore -- it's challenging and fun for anglers of all ages," said Viar. "Join us for a chance to talk about fishing and find out just what it takes to be successful landing these prized fish all summer long."
The talk is the last of three evening fish talks being held at the Fish and Game Department this spring. No registration is required. Just come on by.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is the guardian of the state's fish, wildlife and marine resources and their habitats.
