Trip report and confirmation ?

I'm thinking banded pygmy sunfish, bantam sunfish and possibly chain pickerel. The last would be a new find for me and pretty uncommon in these parts if folks agree that's what it is. This area is part of the Mississippi River embayment and probably 30 or more nautical miles from the main river or any other swampy area. I'm a little surprised these guys made it up this far but I guess you never know. Honestly these were the last species I expected to find sampling this area today.

I think it is a grass pickerel. The "bill" is pretty grass pickerel length, teardrop is slanted, and Occam's razor. Chains are pretty unlikely in that area. The others seem spot on to me. All really exciting species.
