Good call mudcat. Can I change my answer? I thought that ear looked a little too skinny, but I wasn't even aware that redbreasted sunfish even existed.

google fish of wisconsin identification database, it's a pretty good source for fish id and has a ton of pictures from all kinds of angles. It also helps when comparing similar species.
