The catfish looks most like a Tadpole Madtom Noturus gyrinus.
Next, you have a Fat Sleeper Dormitator maculatus. Such beauties - if they didnt get so big I'd get a m/f pair.
Your first three sunfish pics appear to be Warmouth Lepomis gulosus (no doubt that the first one is)
The last sunfish picture is Spotted Sunfish L. punctatus.

Oh! I also forgot to mention, that YES, madtoms (especially tadpole madtoms) do deliver very painful stings caused from the venom in their spines. Madtoms usually aren't feisty once you have them in hand, but it's the ones that you don't see that get you!
Cheers, and I enjoy all of your dipnetting photos.

most of the time i just release the fish back. if i have other club members with me i've given them what they want and the rest goes back in the water right after i take a picture of it. so essentially i'm doing it for the fun of it and photographing/cataloging the species found where and when throughout south florida...

You're welcome. Yup, it's not uncommon to hear people calling warmouth the chameleon of sunfishes (although they don't have the colors of others).
The fat sleepers are very cool fish. Can live in fresh, brackish, salt and their colors are magnificant on both males and females once they get about 5+ inches.

thanks for the info UncleWillie, i hope mine pull through. they have had an extremely difficult time adjusting to the tank for some reason?
i totally forgot to include this picture in the original post. it was the most colorful jewel we caught that day:
