Green Sunfish + Urban Creek

Caught these green sunfish in an urban creek in California. Green sunfish seem to be found wherever there is water-city park ponds, major reservoirs, even dinky storm drain creeks (as was the case for these). You can tell Green Sunfish from Pumpkinseed Sunfish based on their relative mouth sizes-the Greenies have larger mouths, almost like juvenile largemouth bass.
I would rather catch bass, but hey, it's better than a skunk, right?

Nice! Green sunfish are an amazingly beautiful fish. One of my favorites in the panfish class.
