I caught this today. It has the eyes, facials stripes, and mouth of a warmouth bass, but the dorsal fin and more of the body shape of a rock bass. The colors seem to be more of a pumpkinseed mixed with a warmouth bass. Very weird and I've never seen anything like it. It definitely is not one single species. Thoughts?

Back to topic, I'd bet dollars to dog turds,that fish there is a green sunfish. I caught them as a kid fishing the rock walls and broken concrete along the shores of the Rock River. Just voracious little suckers in 3" of water. Big Smile

You win. The true Dorkfish is only native to Plum Lake.

I disagree Lectrotech, that is not a Dorkfish, this is a pic of the only known Dorkfish

That is a Dorkfish. They do not eat only corndogs.

I've caught very similar looking fish on the Fox River...

looks like a warmouth to me. Used to catch them in a local river, here in town. They are very aggressive and fun to catch.

Almost looks like a warmouth/green sunfish hybrid. Could just be an exceptionally colorful warmouth though. Has to be one of those 2.
