Best Answer

In bluegills,it is really hard to tell the difference unless the fish are spawning.Males guard the nest from small fish that would eat the eggs,and it is then one can tell the males from the females.The male is larger,and of a darker color,with a coppery colored band across the head. Females are paler,with faded bands on the flanks.
