Hey guys, this has been confusing me for the past month. I caught this bluegill at lake perris in so cal, but looks nothing like any other I have caught. Does anyone have a good guess as to what type of hybrid this is? or is it just a normal bluegill? 

 

Thanks and good look fishin!

Dr. Peter Moyle's "Inland Fishes of California" states that Lepomis macrochirus purpurescens have been introduced into Perris.  This is the bluegill subspecies native to Florida and southern Georgia.  The only sunfish native to California is the Sacramento Perch, Archoplites interruptus
