Both of these are hybrids. This is why checking the tooth patches are so important.

I am not an expert (i started this post). For the picture a few post ago, I am not certain. The lines aren't pure solid touching the tail, which leads me to think white. But i would look at the tooth patch plus other factors to decide. Tooth patch has helped me out a lot.

Wish the photo were better resolution. My first impression is small hybrid.

Hybrid

Donít know why but I find Somerville bass are hard to tell sometime because there are some monster white there. Some I have to checking over and over to make sure itís a white. If any doubt I ask whoever catched it to threw it back. This always cause a arguement but few second later they would forget because busy fighting another bass.

Itís never worth it if there any doubt.

We regularly catch White Bass Hybrid at lake Somerville that stumps everyone. So I thought I would present it you guys to see what your thoughts are.

On legal size WB and equal size Hybrids IMO they are very easy to tell apart before I even look inside at the tongue.

But we have a fish that grows to 16", that has all the traits of a WB except the bone structure is huge and the fillets looks like 2 strips of bacon. A standard issue 14" WB will have twice the weight in the clean fillet in comparision. The other exception is they have very dark color. They are really green on their backs. I called a LMB on one Saturday because it was so green.

Anyway here is a picture of one...lower left in the photo. The WB beside it is roughly 12".

The one on the bottom left just looks like a chunky sandbass, and the one on the top right looks like it could be a hybrid.

That's just it...it's all bones. The fish to the right will yield double the meat of the one on the left.

Our WB on Soverville have a lot of stripes but the tongue checks out. I check them all.

Also notice the pectoral fin and the gill cover are much darker (green)...it's hard to see in the picture but the back has a lot of green on it.

Thank you for sharing the pictures. Both fishes are hybrids or strippers

I've had the game warden argue that tooth patches mean nothing. After whipping out the book and showing him that's what the state says, he left me alone. I can't do a dna test on the water.
