      Just wanna get a second opinion on what these are. I believe the first is a pumpkin seed, and the second is a hybrid. Guessing mixed with a bluegill, maybe green sunfish.??

      Where did you catch them? Looks like pumpkinseed, and a mix of pumpkinseed.

      Looks to me to be almost all pure pumpkinseeds except for the second to last one (?) with the larger "ear"/gill flap. That one looks like a bluegill x pumpkinseed.

      The first is pure pumpkinseed. The second is pumpkinseed X green sunfish. Just found out by someone who sells wild gamefish. If you look at the second one there is a bit more green in the fish along with the obvious stripes.

      I don't see any green sunfish characteristics. What part of the country did you catch these?
