I've never seen one of those, you should take a pic and post it the next time you catch one.

... I don't think Crappie & Sunfish "mix" (hybridize). :confused:

However, the Sunfish members will occasionally hybridize with other Sunfish members ... like Bluegill with Green Sunfish, or Shellcrackers with Bluegill, etc.
They don't hybridize with Crappie or Bass, even though they are also in the "sunfish" family.

Do they have "Fliers" in your waters ?? They look like a Crappie/sunfish cross :

I'm pretty sure Crappie and Sunfish don't hybridize, they spawn at different times of the year with Crappie spawning much earlier than Sunfish. That's the reason I wanted to see a pic, so I could ID the fish for SSF.

Those little Fliers can be a pain in the butt! Very aggresive and will hit just about anything, which would be ok if they would grow to a decent size... but they're a small breed and can overpopulate a small body of water quickly. They do make great bait for larger predators though!
