I think you guessed right. Orangespotted sunfish. Maybe one of the experts will weigh in.

If that is an orange spotted its a verry colorfull one. Never seen them with that bright of color on the belly and the ones i have captured have never had the orange stripe on the dorsal. Cool looking fish.

You are absolutely correct. That is a male orange-spotted sunfish.
Great catch, rare find, and beautiful pictures.
Way to go!!
