A couple other things that make me think hybrid on this fish are the cheek striations and those dorsal spines. I've yet to catch a greenie with such pronounced white-tipped dorsal spines, like many of your coppernose exhibit.

And those cheeks look a little different from the pure greenies I catch. The marking on the green sunfish I get are pencil thin whereas those on the hybrids tend to be bolder. Here's a greenie from I caught last year showing similar marking to the fish Jim posted a pic of. More characteristics of a pure greenie are shorter and more rounded pectoral fins, longer overall dynamics and a very large mouth.

The bottom fish is a hybrid, albeit crossed with a northern bluegill.

This is just what I'm seeing anyway. Regardless of what exactly this fish is, it's a great fish.

These fish are super territorial.  They have their own "property lines" which they will violently defend!  We made the mistake of putting two of these pretty fish in a large aquarium, and quickly one of them became the dominate fish, killing the other sunfish in a very short time.  Didn't seem to bother the cichlids, it just went after the other Green Sunfish!

sorry wrong pic.

definately a greenie,or mostly.they seem to becoming more common in my area and colors vary,the bigger mouth and the white on the edge of the fins and tail.i sight fish for these as they almost have a halo around them,very aggressive ,fight hard and seem to tremble in your hand.

Awesome sized Green Sunfish or hybrid perhaps .I like Adams suggestion of some Coppernose in there but I 've never caught a Coppernose just seen the pics  here .Led Hed- Did it have any fighting characteristics  that made you doubt pure Greenie?
