Sunfish ID

I caught this Sunfish at Thomas Reservoir. At first I thought Green Sunfish, but then noticed the red ear. Did not look to be a Redear Sunfish, but I guess it could be. I was leaning towards Hybrid. Here on FX, it says Thomas only has Bluegill.

What do you guys think?

Sure looks like a pure green sunfish to me. They have a skill for just showing up in places uninvited... like roaches.

I'm not the expert but looks like a green to me, with very dark body due to environmental factors.
