The Long Eared Sunfish
The long eared sunfish is found throughout the Mississippi Valley, and in the east coast streams; also in the Gulf States. It gets its name from the large ear flap. It has a red iris eye, in common with the other true sunfish. It is bluish on the back and orange, brown or yellow on the under parts. The ventral and anal- fins (fins on under parts) are blue, and the dorsal fin is orange color with blue rays. It is about the same size as the common sunfish.
