Very nice...and jives with my experience that big 'gills go after relatively big flies.

Thanks Chuck, Meadowlark, and Jamie.

Chuck- it's just a Green/Bluegill hybrid, wish I would have had you nearby to weigh it, it was going between 1.49-1.52lbs on the Rapala digital. thumb

Meadowlark- I agree with you. My buddy was spin fishing and caught some nice sunfish on bigger lures than my fly.

Andrew a Georgia Giant is a hybrid cross between a Green Sunfish and a Bluegill Sunfish! I caught my first one on a private pond while fishing with Fred (Rionator). I thought I had a Green Hybrid and Fred explained to me it was a Georgia Giant which is a Greem/Bluegill mix. Mine was just under a pound and a half on a non certified scale. We had nothing to keep the fish alive in so I released it. Beautiful fish and full of fight. Caught it on a big Ol'Night Crawler. hooked

Not exactly. It is a three way cross, i.e. three different species. The exact order is proprietary but goes like this...green sunfish crossed with red ear and the resulting fish is crossed with a bluegill...or some other order/combo but it involves three distinct species.

I've raised them and they are an interesting fish, for sure.
