Panfish ID ...What'cha think

RealSeabeeRealSeabee Posts: 577 Officer
Leaning toward Stumpknocker / spotted Sunfish but the colors are off and the face looks Warmouth'ish but not the lips.  Maybe a Hybrid?  The only Hybrids that we see (rare) and (crossed in the wild) is a mix with a Speckled Perch and Warmouth (we think)...

    They're both bluegill.  We get some whacky colorations down here in Florida.

    sorry, not a Bluegill.  Below is a Bluegill.  Color variations are wildly different from the Sloughs to the River to the Lakes to the Spring Fed creeks in FLA but the Body Shape is pretty consistent.

    First one is a red breast sunfish. Second is a spotted sunfish possibly. I catch all 3 around my dock a lot. Specks too

    First one could be a redbreast; short operculum tab for a redbreast, but stranger things happen.  Second is still a bluegill.  Females are distinctly different in shape and color for bluegills.

    Spotted sunfish have single gray spots in the center of each scale, while fish #2 has coloration on the rear edges of some scales.

    You are not seeing hybrids between crappie and warmouth; they are in different genera (Pomoxis v. Lepomis).

    I try not to. it gives me A head ache.




    I just got back from the petting zoo



    I'm the one with the hat on.



    I walk in the house. After A minute or two I go to wash my hands
    and the dog stands next to  his water bowl. I give him water and
    as I kneel down he walks to the door to the back yard. He has it
    all planned out. When he gets back he has his bowl of water. Me
    and the dog get along.



    I have an issue with A bunch of donkeys going on for A while.
    You can't think straight because you're anticipating others mistakes.
    Eventually you make one of your own and now from out of nowhere
    chingittyching decides to raise his voice at you and thinks it's okay to
    do that. What are you my loving mother!

    What's on the menu or may we call it the game plan? Let's seA what happens.

    Good to know! ;)
