Oh, and it has the orange ring around the gill flap which it needs according to the ID page too!!

Definitely a hybrid of sorts, the large mouth indicates some green influence, and I think I see some Pumpkinseed and Bluegill in there too. Also note the giant size. The Northern Sunfish should only reach five inches.

Roughfishing is the act of fishing for all species: game, rough, and micro. Roughfishing is more of a lifestyle to me, rather than just a hobby.
