Fat Pumpkinseed

I caught a few of these guys, but this one was pretty plump for a March fish. Must have been some extra "nutrients" coming out of the 4MR WWTP Outfall... An interesting difference between Pumpkinseeds and Bluegills - pumpkinseeds seem to have a thinner slime coat, you can feel their scales a lot more than a bluegill's. The colors on these guys were getting more vibrant as well - a good sign that spring is coming (despite the 8 inches of snow we got today).
