BlueGill

Lepomis macrochirus purpurescens – “scaled gill cover” “large hand” “purplish” respectively

Coppernose Bluegill, native to the Florida peninsula, is a subspecies of the bluegill, are green or brown in color and very round-bodied. They have a dark splotch between their eye and dorsal fin, with vertical line-bar patterns in their scales. Coppernose grow one-half to three-fourths pound the first year. They eat insects, zooplankton, worms, small fish, and snails, as well as consume parasitic worms that infect other fish. As Coppernose Bluegills are not picky eaters and exhibit aggressive feeding behaviors, they grow larger and faster than common bluegill without supplemental feeding and have even better growth when fed pellets. With several spawnings each season, they furnish a constant buffet of different size forage to your game fish. Coppernose Bluegill need warmer waters all throughout the year, more so than do the common bluegill.
