As this isn't about bluegills or sunfish...but about another of those colorful "panfish", I apologize ahead of time if this isn't entirely appropriate. Don't read further if you'll be offended.
These are of the European Yellow Perch which is a closely related but separate species (depending on the source) to the yellow perch found in North America. But these things can grow large. One record I saw said the fish was 23.6"!! I don't recall the weight, but apparently up to and possibly over 10 lbs!
I personally would be interested in having this introduced into the US...I mean, nobody asked us if we wanted Carp introduced! Or... I'd be interested to see what a hybrid between the 2 species would produce.
Who wouldn't want to catch a few of these?? (these were "captured" from a slideshow on YouTube, and the creators are apparently from a European country)
As far as fish porn goes, these really impressed me, and I felt the need to share.
The heads on some of these things are so big, they look like bass!!
