Default Help with panfish ID.

While I am confident in my identification skills for trout, I am not an expert on warm-water species. Help me settle an argument. Is this a Green Sunfish, Bluegill, or a Hybrid?

This one is still swimming. They do make great fish tacos, but since I caught it on my way to work let him go. My coworkers probably would not appreciate me filleting fish in the office...

I'm voting greenie, at least until someone smarter says otherwise.


I don't eat gills or greenies, but bass and cats know the difference and definitely prefer one over the other.

I won't be second guessing then.
