Can anyone tell me if this is a hybrid gill or a pumpkinseed?

It looks like it might be a hybrid between a greenie and a pumpkinseed.

Not a green. Likely a hybrid of some sort. Very difficult to tell which by "sight" alone, as most sunfish hybrids don't have unique morphological markers. And from what I've read, short of dissection or genetic testing you won't know for sure.

Does look to have some pumpkinseed to me.

At first I was gonna say green sunfish/bluegill hybrid but there doesn't seem to be any of the blue spotting greenie hybrids usually have on there face
