Do you love big bluegill?

I am catching a variety of panfish at this time. Can someone help me identify them. There seems to be quite a difference in their color and shape.

I'm going with, Left column top two fish: redear, redear, I see a lot of redear in the fish on the bottom left, but I won't discount the fact that there could be some bluegill mixed in there too.

Right hand fish: Bluegill.

I'm taking a shot at it. I'm still new at fully identifying the panfish, since there are so many variation now. Bruce, Tony, Walt, and a few other masters will be able to identify them with finesse.

- Top two on the left side: redear, male, possibly reaching initial spawning stage.

- Bottom left: Bluegill (FL strain), female, early spawning stage? Stomach is a tad small, and the breast coloration is light. Pre-spawning going into spawning.

- Right:  Bluegill, could be male. I see a nice head, darken color (but could be due to lighting) but at the same, the breast is indicating female due to the light yellow coloration.

If I miss identifying these beauty, correct me! Will make better notes for better identification later.
