I appreciate what NANFA does and I respect the vast amount of knowledge you all have. I am looking for some advice on whether this is a banded sunfish or a bluespotted sunfish? As far as range goes, bluespotted are more common in this location in Maryland, however Banded have been documented as well. I am thinking the answer is bluespotted, however, the visible bands and the brownish tint have me questioning whether this could be a banded sunfish.
