    caught this brilliantly colored, male longear sunfish fishing the Darby about a week ago. Probably the most colorful freshwater fish I've ever caught.

    just got back from a family trip, did some pond fishing and the boys are proud of their catches.

    I caught a fish just like the first one pictured about 6 weeks ago on the darby myself. Down around orient area.
    I had never seen one like that until then. And now of course.

    When I get my 100 gallon tank set up again, I'm going to get a few creek fish and will have one or two of those guys, nothing prettier!

  5. If you are close to Johnstown I would enjoy seeing the boys catch some fish from my pond, they my be a little larger than those fish but not larger than there smiles.

    yep I also considered the pumpkinseed as a possibility, but cleared it up after some reading and browsing. They are really cool and to be honest, the picture doesn't do it's colors justice....... it's belly was as bright red/orange as I've ever seen on a fish. I'm also going to try and set up a freshwater tank in my biology classroom this year (had one a few years ago with bass in it), it'd be pretty cool to get one each of the common species of central ohio!

    Slim, I see you're still tearing it up over at O'shay, now you're messing with the kitties eh? I'll give you a call.... we'll definitely hook up soon.....

    Leupy, I'll take that as an official invite! :p We don't get out that way much though, but that's real cool to offer!

    I've always thought those were pumkinseeds, I could be wrong, there are alot of different types of bluegills found in moving waters, funny thing is you almost never get a true bluegill like you see in ponds, warmouths, green sunfish, longears, pumkinseeds to name a few off the top of my head. I'll have to do some research!
    FUN!

    UPDATE: Looks like a pumkinseed to me: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Lepomis_gibbosus.jpg

    I believe you are correct, I should have looked at the longear picture when I was looking, saw the pumkinseed one and thought BINGO. I never knew they looked so similar, you learn something new everyday, and you find that you are wrong that often too.

    you and me both brother! :p I was calling it a pumkinseed around all of our friends the afternoon I caught it..... with all of the species and varieties (and hybrids), I'm going to start calling them all "some kind of colorful panfish"!

    I'll stick with calling it a sauger. (inside joke)
