Warmouth sunfish - Lepomis gulosus, also known as Redeye, Goggle-eye, Red-eyed Bream, Stump Knocker, Mudgapper, Mo-mouth, Morgan, Molly, Rock Bass, Open Mouth, Weed Bass, Wood Bass, Strawberry "perch", Mud Bass, Warmouth Bass. Warmouth are found in the Great Lakes and Mississippi River basins, from western Pennsylvania to Minnesota, south to the Gulf of Mexico; and the Atlantic and Gulf drainages from the Rappahannock River in Virginia to the Rio Grande in Texas and New Mexico.


At least that's what google says. Rock bass goggle eye and warmouth are the same species.

"Rock bass" is a nickname for warmouth, but rock bass "Ambloplites rupestris" are a separate species from warmouth "Lepomis gulosus."
