Agree - green.
I once found one of them in the middle of a field in CC park. It was floppin around in a puddle after a huge rainstorm. Not sure how it got there, but it was fine. Those things are TOUGH.

Thanks all he has this new love of baiting the buggers in the rocks and then saying that he beat me at fishing.

Green sunfish. They are highly aggressive and will hit bass sized lures even when they are only 5" - 7" long.

It's a green - I have one in my 50 gallon aquarium that I saved from the feeder tank at Petco years ago. He was only the size of a quarter back then.
