Doc, man, that's awesome.


Clearly and obviously Orangespotted hybrid.  And Cool Big Fish!


This demonstrates why Orangespots are on the list.  I've only ever seen one other photograph of a fish like this, and this is a much better photograph.


Several ichthyolgists I know will be very interested in seeing this.  Especially the dudes working on the new fish books being published.  It's important to document hybrids.

I caught a Orangespot and Green Sunfish hybrid a few years back too.  Wish I had taken a pic of it.

Very cool catch. Best hybrid sunfish award forsure.

O Lord it's a big one. If you let me get em' in I promise I let em' go.
