Hard Labor Creek, Greenwood Co., SC.

What do you think on this guy? I keep circling around to Dollar, but it is pretty much on the outskirts of its range here. This locale is above the Fall Line, and is more Redbreast territory. I found it in some pretty shallow, but enthusiastic, riffles of all places.

Redbreast.  Dollars would already be sexy at that length.


Find ways for people not already interested in natives to value them.

well you already have an expert opinion, but I would say that this fish looks longish to me in the caudal peduncle (dollars would be shorter there in my experience) and then the ear tab should have some white around the edge or on it (which I'm not seeing... that stuff on his face all looks greenish/blueish to me).

Oooh baby, baby!

Thanks, guys. It "should have been" an auritus, but the lines of blue spots on the belly, and the bright markings on the outside of the ear tab, and the ear tab's "fatness" kept throwing me.

I knew I should have gone to the Michael Wolfe default for SC sunfish id's; it's always a Redbreast...

Not that it matters now but definitely redbreast.

hybrid, probably some redbreast, green, warmouth and spotted bass all in one. Maybe a hint of dollar.

after all my objections, this is a post that makes me want to implement downvoting posts or member point system of some kind.  this is worth 10 demerits.

I disagree, I think it's worth 20 points.
