War Mouth
« on: Feb 10, 2011, 09:41 AM »
I remember my Dad and I catching these little fish on set lines. Cross between a gill and bass? They never get real big, maybe 3 to 4 in. Anybody caught these fish lately? I had a fella ask me about what they were. My Dad called them War Mouth.   Jerry

Pretty sure that's a green sunfish.

They get a little larger in the south east as I've caught them to 9 1/2".

Here's a little more info. Enjoy.

Yes I have caught them in WI.  That photo appears to be of a green sunfish, the warmouth looks much more like a rockbass than a sunny. The tail is also notched deeper on the warmouth.
