I went back out to my hot new fishing spot and landed many great fish today about 25 total. I caught 2 sunfish over 10 inches today within 10 minutes of each other! First was a 1 lb 1 oz green sunfish hybrid at just over 11.5 inches, 2nd was 10.5 inches and 14 ounces. I believe the current state record for a hybrid green sunfish is .83lbs. So is this in fact a new state record??????????? Luckily I had my IFGA certifed scales and tape measure in my packpack to get all the proper photos and such. Either way I had a SUPER DAY!




2nd smaller fish below only 10.5 inches LOL!




More fish from today can you tell me FISH ID?

Note the last 3 pics you have to click on to view. I guess I took too many pics! Trying To ID them all. But mainly trying to find out if my 1.1 pounder is a state record Hybrid or not?

If it is a Hybrid Green you beat the current records in both public and private water bodies. Was your fish caught in a private water body? hmmm





Side Note: Look like Hybrids to me! Georgia Giants! Nice fish and congratulations on your pending record! cheers

Definitely look to be Greenie hybrids. Probably not GG's since they tend to be designer hybrids and the pics look to be wild hybrids. Congrats! The first three pics are true SPECIMENS!

Those are some tanks! Beautiful green sunfish hybrids in my opinion. Pic 1 and 4 out of the bottom 7 pics appear to be bluegill and the rest hybrids as well. Congrats on some more great catches and pending records.

They appear to me to be a Bluegill/Green mix. Georgia Giants when produced were a Bluegill/Green mix. Also since the pond is a private pond there is a good chance the fish could have been stocked there. Just my two cents. 2cents

The top photos could well be GG's. I've raised them and yours have the GG look which shows the triple influence of bluegill, green sunfish, and red ear sunfish. The brightly colored anal fin is another common characteristic on GG's.

If they are GG's, they would fall into the "Sunfish, other hybrid" record category and would not nearly break the current record of 1.73 pounds and 12.5 inches. I've raised them to 12 inches myself....but its worth a try since you have the documentation.

The red ear influence, which is clearly visible in your photos, is, IMO, what distinguishes those fish from just a green sunfish hybrid. The GG shows the triple cross characteristics and actually, in my experience, I've never seen all three characteristics that didn't have GG somewhere in the lineage.

I was looking at the hybrid Green Sunfish Record and not the other hybrid sunfish record. If the fish would fall into the other hybrid sunfish category it would be well short of the record. thumb
