Yes, only much bigger.😁

I'm not 100% certain, but I think it's a redspotted sunfish, Lepomis miniatus.  A juvenile female, probably.  Redspotted sunfish are found in the Jacks Fork, though I've never caught one.

Did see that the Jacks Fork/Current River as well as the 11 pt and other south flowing rivers in the southeast portion of the state are within the distribution range for redspotted sunfish.  A couple

I know that redspotted sunfish are in the eastern rivers near Poplar bluff. Was going to check distribution this morning to see if they could be found in Jacks Fork.

I was looking at my pictures of smallies and some have red eyes and some tan out of the same river.  

Pete - Like these? I caught these two in the same river and the same day only about a 1/4 mile of river between them. I had thought that the eye color in smallmouth bass was a male/female deal though really had not looked into it much.
