Thanks, Ray

I appreciate the offer, but I wasn't able to get a shot of it. The camera
lens was still fogged at that point. There are many different
possibilities. We were in range for bluegill, warmouth, green, redbreast,
redear, or spotted. Dustin remarked at the time that it most resembled a
flier, but we can be sure it wasn't that. The few hybrids I have kept in
the past have always done well.
