    One of the sunfish family - I'm guessing a bream (not really "up" on all the kinds of sunfish - there are several).

    I'm going to vote for a green sunfish... they're more elongated and have the black spots in the right places..

    Looks like a bass to me.
     
  9. From another "Sutherner" here.....looks like a Warmouth to me also. They have a mouth larger than a standard bluegill (bream) and tend to be a little larger. They are typically caught on worms or small crayfish
