Also known as Lepomis megalotis, I was in the Cin Ohio aquarium and saw some of these sunfish and they are beautiful. Anyone have any idea how I could get my hands on one of these. I don't think you can catch one in NE.
Yep I have those around my lakes. Catch them all the time. But i have never seen one with so much red like that. Usually they have turquiose up there jaw like dempseys and GTs and some red bellys. But that looks like some breeding experiment.
