What are these a hybrid of? I caught either a smallmouth or a mean mouth at Roberts Friday, just curious to what it was?

Meanmouth is commonly used to refer to a spot/smallmouth hybrid. There are a couple of states (Arkansas is one) that recognize meanmouth as its own distinct fish. Here in Texas, there are a bunch of mutt bass. Seems that smallmouth, spots, and Guadalupe bass frequently interbreed to create various crosses that are difficult to tell apart. Did your fish have a tongue patch? I have been checking every odd bass I catch just to see. The strongly colored smallmouth I catch do not have a patch. This one did:
