I'll second that ID. It definitely has some bluegill in it, at least.

Bluegill cross yes. Pumpkinseed I am not so sure of in back ground. Are Longear Sunfish also present?

I think you guys are right about the bluegill component. Then it would seem that the other component would have to be longear or redbreast to have such a long opercular tab. To confuse matters more, the top fish seems to have quite a large mouth.

Redbreast is other half. I see light stripes extending forward from upper and lower edges of opercular tabs. Longear and Pumpkinseeds both lack that. They do not look to have Spotted Sunfish in them as i have made those.

The large amount of turquoise on the flanks made me think of redbreast (at least the ones around Atlanta). I was wondering about the dark pelvic fins... how common is that in sunfish species? I know that spotteds have that trait.

Redear and even some Bluegill can exhibit the black pelvic fins.

How can I find out if my bluegill is a male or female?
