Evelyn's Catches

Type: Nontidal
Region: Central
Location: Churchville Rec Pond

My daughter, Evelyn Marie Vass, and I were fishing the Churchville Rec Pond when she caught what she initially believed to be a Bluegill/Crappie hybrid. She ended up catching 3 different fish that look exactly the same.

DNR Info: Great catch Evelyn! The fish you caught is a redear sunfish. You can read more about them here https://bassonline.com/freshwater-species/redear-sunfish/

She also caught several other fish a couple days prior. A largemouth bass and a black crappie.
