Well your bluegills could be bigger because that there is a green sunfish. Not a bluegill

Didn't buy any green sunfish. Bluegill, black crappie, Hybrid stripers, catfish and millions of minners and shad. How are you certain it's a green sunfish? They are both very similar.

Mouth is to large, you can see the Orange around the ears and starting to form on fins and tail, can see the beginning of black spots on the back dorsal fin and anal fin. No bars like a bluegill has either, and to long and not enough girth to be a bluegill

I'll say it again, that's a green sunfish, won't be long you'll prob get some bullheads in your pond too, birds carry eggs on their feet easily, and fish find ways to move around, it's inevitable. Biology, wildlife and marine biology especially are my thing. I'd be willing to bet I could id any fish or animal you show me. Just google green sunfish. Bluegills don't have those green pretty lines through the face and body, and the red gill plate should tell you that it's not a "blue" gill

Did you start with empty ponds and fill em then stock em, they were most likely there before you stocked

Either one of them will bait a trot line or feed your bass.

The tanks were bone dry before May so there were no fish before. Entirely possible it was dropped by a bird. Or maybe Pond King slipped some in on me

If you want them as forage fish then it's ok I guess but if you were trying to grow big bluegills then I don't know how everything will play out, bass and cats will eat em and there good eating like a bluegill when they get big but it's just another species in there that take up growing room for more desirables I guess you could say. How big are the ponds

Actually the war mouth and rock bass are two totally different species than the green sunfish as well
