Personally,  I like speckled perch, they can grow up to 15-20 inches - they like deeper water but  they can also handle the cold.  They usually dont start tearing it up down here till the colder months,  jan/feb.  Channel cats will do well too,  and fun to catch. 

Not too sure about bluegill and cold temps.  It does not get that cold down here,  it will freeze a few times in the winter but never cold enough to ice over the pond.  theres plenty of panfish in the springs around here so i guess they can handle it ok

they did not like speckled perch either cause it is invasive,  but i think it is the best tasting fresh water fish there is,    along with  suckers
