    Or Bluegill or Red Ear.

    Here is the ones that we have in our Ozark streams: Longear Sunfish, We usually call all of them just Bluegills

    They really go for the red wigglers, usually we switch to minnows to catch small mouth bass and keep the Bluegills off the line, they become a nuisance when you're hunting big game.

    I was born and raised in Texas and learned all three of those names for the fish in the pics but "Sunfish" was the most common where I was/am.

    We usually tossed them back but kept the Crappie which we called "White Perch" and the largemouth bass. I think I may have cooked some sunfish once - scaled and gutted but whole in a skillet. As I recall, they tasted pretty good but it took a lot of effort to get a small amount of meat.

    I grew up close to the Gulf so, salt water fishing was my favorite.

    The Edisto River is a fantastic place to canoe. Pics from a few years ago below the Givhans State Park.

    Back home after a trip. Nice catfish and a basket of bream hanging off the back corner of the trailer.

    We have some big Bluegill in farm ponds in this area. I have never got the elusive 12"ER yet but have come close at 11 3/8". We have several fish in the Sunfish family here. The prettiest one lives in clear water creeks and is called the Pumpkinseed. They don't get much more than 6". The Rock Bass is the biggest and can go over 12". They are all a PIA when fishing UL for creek Smallies. I have caught 6" Bluegills on 5/8oz Jitterbug when hungry they will hit anything. When fishing for them we use #10 deer hair bugs on fly rod.
