The Blue Sunfish
The blue sunfish is found almost all over the eastern, central and southern states. In Ohio, and other of the central states, it is known as the blue-gill and in the South as blue bream and copper nosed bream. It is larger than the common sunfish and sometimes attains a weight of a pound or a pound and a half, but usually is lighter. The coloring is greenish or bluish, sometimes a slate color, lighter on the sides, and the under parts are copper colored or red. The ear cover is dark or black.
