NANFA-L-- Sunfish not feeding

I have what I believe to be an off-color green sunfish or hybrid. It is about
5" long. Recently, it has stopped eating the dried tubifex I had been feeding
it. It will eat worms, but they are scarce now that cold weather has arrived.
I got some frozen silversides to feed it, but it refuses these as well. Any
ideas why it does this? The nitrate is fine.
