BelAirSteve beat me to it, I was just gonna ask that. There's a slight chance that last fish could have some bluegill in it, as green sunfish do tend to hybridnize with other sunfish species, but it is definitely not a pure bluegill. Bluegills don't have the blue/green lines or the orange on the fins.

gfen, you mean like the dark spot at the base of the dorsal fin on streamerguy's pics? Do you contend that they are bluegill too? I don't recall ever seeing a bluegill with those blue/green lines on the side of the head either.


I think he means its a freaking bluegill, who cares!

Definitely not a bluegill or a pumpkin seed.

Chaz, my autistic nephew could color better than whoever did those pictures for the PF&BC. Then again, the PF&BC could be "trying" to depict a female. The only thing that they got about right was the shape which you entirely missed. Also look at the mouth.

Google something other than PF&BC. No idea why their fish identification pages are so lame. Was it done by Walt Disney?

Most likely a male green sunfish, and green sunfish do have the spot at the base of the dorsal fin.

Going by color is a not a good way to id sunfish. I've posted this link before, so please forgive me if you've seen it before:

Sunfish identification by key.

It's a green sunfish.

Funny you should say that - I know gfen's sarcasm runs about as deep as anyone's, and I normally do a pretty good job of detecting. I guess I was off my game a little!

It's called "bait" I believe.....Use them to attract BIG BASS and MUSKIES.

They are definately fun to catch especially on a 3wt. I agree with streamerguy.
