That's what we in the Midwest call a BullGill.   Very nice fish.

Well I did't know what a red ear was so I looked em up on Wiki;
"Description[edit]

Illustration of the redear sunfish, Lepomis microlophus
The redear sunfish generally resembles the bluegill except for coloration and somewhat larger size. The redear sunfish also has faint vertical bars traveling downwards from its dorsal.[1] It is dark-colored dorsally and yellow-green ventrally. The male has a cherry-red edge on its operculum; females have orange coloration in this area. The adult fish are between 20 and 24 cm (7.9 and 9.4 in) in length. Max length is 43.2 cm (17.0 in), compared to a maximum of about 40 cm (16 in) for the bluegill. Lepomis microlophus averages at a size of about 0.45 kg (0.99 lb), also larger than the average bluegill.
"
I've caught some big gills before but I couldn't imagine catching 16" ones mentioned.

Awesome catch.
