Transcript

  • 1. Stalking the Elusive Bluegill The bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus) is in the sunfish family and is native to North America.
  • 2. The most distinguishing characteristic is its blue or black coloring on the tip of the gill cover. This does not give it the name quot;bluegillquot;, however. It gets its name from the bright blue edges of the gill rakers. I was not able to photograph these as handling the fish would have severely stressed it, more than it already was. Bluegill Lepomis macrochirus
  • 3. Our bluegill was 7 inches long. Reasoning for thinking this is a bluegill and not a pumpkinseed sunfish is that our fish does not have the crimson coloring along the edge of the gill cover.
