    Caught a few fish on a scouting run to see what kind of conditions are prevailing at the spot. Made a short video too.. Note: IF YOU'RE THE STUPID F TARD that dumped that bass in a 30 foot hole to die (it is obvious it is already starting to starve): I will rectify the problem if someone else doesn't before I do... Just saying. Otherwise, this will be harvest in the pool and the overall size of the sunfish in there will benefit until the interloper gets killed or dies on its own, whatever happens.

    Nice primer on the difference between Greenies and other sunfish.
    Green sunfish: Big mouth, rounded pectoral fin, body shaped more like a bass (1st pic)
    Bluegill/other sunfish: small mouth, pointed pectoral fin, body shaped more like a flapjack.
    Yeah, I know they interbreed and you'll see GSF colors on bluegill-shaped fish and vice versa.

    I wouldn’t think so.
    Only problem might be releasing it in another lake if that lake doesn’t have the same fish in it.

    Just this one:

    1.63. MOVEMENT OF LIVE FISH.
    Except as provided in sections 4.00 through 4.30 and 230, live fin fish may not be transported alive from the water where taken.

    ....and no, the sections cited don't allow transportation of live panfish.

    I took a course in aquariums at Southwest JC
    and had local fish in my aquariums also had local saltwater aquariums.
    I say if you want a local fish for your aquariums go for it.

    Correction, almost graffiti free. That area was beautiful back in the early 90s.

    No such thing as native freshwater almost anything around here .. I have seen one southern steelhead... One... Maybe a couple trout.. other than that, not a single one... They are all fun to fish for though.
