Google isn't always that accurate. The sea grant fishes of Wisconsin site used to be a great resource for fish ID but it seems to be down at the moment.

I googled pumkinseed and that was the best picture they had. Could be what you said. The pumkinseed I've caught look nothing like most these pics. I'll try to get out and get good pic of one. Bput 8.5 inches has been my biggest, but it was a thick fish.

Definitely looks like a mondo hybrid! Nice catch! Grizwald it looks like the first pic you posted is of a male long eared sunfish as opposed to a pumpkinseed right?
