that is a hybrid. i don't think you would break the record by 4 inches. the record is a 18" fish caught in 1990. That would probally be a world record sandbass. But it is a nice fish. It has two tooth patches. Johnny
Looks like a Hybrid from My lake! Probably when the floods hit and Bridgeport dumped all the fish overboard. Fishing here is not very good and has not been since then. Have fun catching them because they are real fighters. Good Catch!!!
