These red breasted sunfish fish photos shown below are close up pictures showing you exactly what a red breasted sunfish fish looks like. Redbreasted sunfish are caught in fresh water, but are sometimes found in brine water also as long as it is mostly fresh water. Like most panfish, they are also a good eating fish. Redbreasted sunfish can be filleted or gutted and eaten just like any other panfish, and taste very similiar to a bluegill, crappie, or pinfish. Worms, shrimp, or almost anything will work as redbreasted sunfish bait.

How to identify a redbreasted sunfish? Some characteristics of the sunfish include scales, panfish similiar to bluegill, varying colors, and spike type of fins on top. (Always remember when releasing fish to get them back into the water as soon as possible and not over handle them, so the fish do not die after being released. Just because the fish swims away does not mean it actually survived. Maybe in the future when you are fishing it will bite your line again when its much larger!).
