Caught this in my new pond in a minnow trap. Thinking GSF, but BG is possible. Opinions?

Vertical baring would lead me to believe BG or RES. If no RES present then likely BG.
The smaller size GSF I've seen seem to be a bit slimmer-more fusiform in nature but this is only my opinion.

I'm going with BG as well. What would make you think it was a GSF?

I see pure BG but at that size positive ID can be tough.

There are GSF and maybe BG in the pond above. The pond will definitely inherit GSF at some point, but I was hoping to get BG started first.
