    Default fish ID?

    i've been catching a bunch of these lately in the 7 to 12 inch range. i'm pretty sure its a warmouth, but if anyone knows for sure, let me know.

    By the head and body line markings definitely a Warmouth. Not used to see such a yellow belly. Much darker down south where I've caught them. Cool looking!

    Not sure on the ID, but it looks like something that would be fun to catch!

    I agree with theboz, the head and mouth are definitely that of the warmouth. That's a pretty good sized one, have you been getting them on spiders or poppers?

    My guess is a pumpkin seed/bluegill hybrid.

    That's what we called em when I was a kid. A neighbor when I grew up had a really small pond he stocked and we'd catch a lot of those. I bet a 12"er is a lot of fun.
