What Do You Call This Fish?
I have heard this fish called a few things. Take a peek and see if you know what kind of fish it is. Maybe you have a name I've never heard of.
I've heard blue gill, sunfish, pumpkin seed... I know for sure it is in the sunfish family. I also found out that people sport fish for sunfish. These fish are popular in lakes and ponds. People have eaten them as well but not obviously a popular fish for consuming.
I was fishing for bass and these type of fish like to hang in the weeds and where there is vegetation. This fish hit a streamer that was the size of itself. Big eyes and small stomach.
I call it just a sunfish but again have heard a few different things.
