    That is what I thought the color on the gill plate I was not sure of. I have been catching a few lately some fairly large one.

    I vote flier. Use to have a pond that was full of them. Could usually catch them in the middle of the pond fishing about 2-3 ft deep.

    That one in the pic is a nice one. They are kinda hard to find at times but when you do it's on.

    Pretty sure it's a flyer. In my area they are usually way up the creek in narrow black water or mill ponds.

    Gonna buck the trend here and say bluegill. Fliers typically have a dark stripe neath the eye, which is lacking here. Also, fliers have a dark edge on the anal fin, again,, lacking here.

    Fish does not look like your average bluegill either. Maybe a hybrid?

    I'm not so sure thats a Flier either. If you go to the thread below and look through the photos, the 5th photo down is a Flier.

    I've only seen a couple of fliers and both had the stripe below the eye and were much paler than this one. Blue gill colors can be a variety of shades.

    My wife with a flier we use to catch in the pond behind our house. The water was tea colored like mill pond water and all the fish were dark.
