That fish is a green sunfish (also called mud bass, strawberry bass, etc.).  Similar color to a pumpkinseed but the head and mouth are much bigger.  Pretty common fish in southern Wisconsin rivers.  Don't get very big.

That's it, yes, Pumpkinseed.  That was the other name we always called them growing up.  And yes they are very common, particularly around rocks and other cover.

The panfish that the child is holding is a Pumpkinseed (Lepomis gibbosus).  These are very common through out Wisconsin, and the upper mid-west.

Yep that fish looks like it came out of the baraboo for sure.  

And to echo how fish tend to take on the type of water they're in, I always think of the smallmouth I catch in tannin stained water that tend to be darker.

Yep, fish routinely take on coloring according to the water and vegetation they inhabit.  Not so much as chameleons.  But, I bet you will find most of the Lg Mouth bass of similar color.

That little fella is commonly called a Warmouth.  I call them strawberry bass, but I think that is only a local name from when I grew up.

I thought it was a largemouth; must be a light color because of the water/vegetation in the area? Have another picture here.


Pictured as well a panfish, possibly hybrid with largemouth.

That's a largemouth.  That slight stripe down the back is the main indicator.

Hmmm, it looks a lot like a largemouth, but the color is off unless that is due to the camera lighting.

Fishing withing the city limits of Elroy, WI

Live in town, grew up around the area.

Found a few panfish, plenty of chubs/suckers; no trout...one bullhead

Boy found a bass, not sure of the breed- largemouth, small mouth, rock bass? Potentially a hybrid- any input helps.
