Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Does anyone have information on a hybrid called Arkansas super-blues? My brother and I bought some from a fish truck and put them in a one acre pond on his farm. They were about 4 inches long and grew to 10 1/2 inches in two years! We had not seen anything like these in Kentucky. They would attack any live or artificial bait. They had a mouth larger than a bluegill, and I think a red dot on their gill plate like a redear. He sold his farm and I nolonger have access to it. I was just wondering if anyone else have these in their pond and how big do they get.

I have never heard of an actual strain with that name.....did the majority of fish have male characteristics?
The best I can remember they were all bright colored like males. They reminded me of a giant green sunfish, but they had a rough mouth like small teeth you would find on a 5 lb. bass. These fish were overly agressive and I,m thinking maybe they are some type of hybrid sunfish.
Sounds like a typical Hybrid Bluegill...male BG x female GS

Do you have any pictures?
Maybe they were descendants of the Georgia Giant. Or could have been the infamous Gillcrackers.

Do you remember what fish farm you got them from?

Just a thought.
