Been catching these out of our stock tanks for years. They get quite big as you can see. have a mouth like a bass. We do have some perch in the same tanks that have the small mouths as well. Thanks in advance.

Thanks guys. Yes, They get really big. He is a small kid but just using the snoopy pole as reference you can see it is big. That is one of the bigger ones we have caught.

Mineral Wells, yeah I can make out there sometime. Oh I wasn't invited, lol.

Yup that is some catch. I am sure its not his first fish but I'd send that pic in to the TPWD and get that young man a "First Fish" award or something. That's worth keeping a memory of.

Thanks for sharing that. The smile on his face was well worth the share.

Could it be a Rock bass, Goggle eye, Warmouth or whatever everyone calls it in your town? I caught quite a few of those in my childhood up in OK and they could get quite large. Mouth was much larger than a Bluegill

Great Fish !!!! My guess is it's a hybrid green sunfish. I catch a lot of both pure green sunfish and hybrid green sunfish in ponds. The hybrid green sunfish are consistently much bigger than a pure green sunfish. The coloring is usually much darker on the mature pure breed green sunfish in ponds as well.

That fish is a TOAD! cheers Lifetime Memory! thumb




Side Note: Leaning to a Hybrid Green for the same reason that J-Moe stated. Also the ear on the fish is longer than normal and there is no orange color on the back dorsal fin. eeks

Nice fish! Love those young ones holding fish. woot



Side Note: It seems that just about every specie of the six sunfish are inner breeding. I would say the above fish is more Green and than Hybrid. It should also be noted that I am wrong on my fish I.D.'s 90 percent of the time. hammer

Great pic, I know that smile well, good job dad! That is a beast of a sunnie! My 2 cents, I'm leaning with the majority and thinking that's a multi-generation hybrid greenie, especially if you have been getting those for many years. Wouldn't and couldn't put a percentage on it but it looks more green than anything else especially with that huge mouth, with some redear in there due to the longer body shape and overall size.
