Hey Tim,

I haven't eaten enough of either shellcrackers (redear sunfish) or bluegills to give a real good critique on either, but if you like bluegills and crappie you will probably like shellcrackers. I think many folks like them better than gills because they are often larger.

My limited experience with eating them is that shellcrackers "may" have a little more "flavor" than bluegills and sometimes this is said to be a slight muddy taste. The meat is firmer than crappie and more similar (no surprise) to bluegills in texture. In any case, they are excellent eating and I rank them in the same category as crappie, sauger, and bluegills for eating quality.

Good luck and good fishin'

Kerry
