GFFPix - a picture from the Global FlyFisher user's galery
The longear sunfish is often mis-identified as a pumpkinseed. This is the most beautiful of all warmwater fishes with delicate markings of vivid blue and orange. A record specimen is almost always under 8\", the Ohio state record is slightly under 7\". This fish was about 5\" long.
