    Default Fish I.D.

    Just learning freshwater fishing and have not been able to identify this one on my own. Thought it was a bass of some sort when I caught it but doesn't really seem to match pictures of large and smallmouth bass I see online.

    Yeah it's a largemouth bass. Just very light colored.

    agreed, it's a largemouth. probably from muddy water. they look kind of washed out like that when they come from off-color water.

    Thanks! Water was definitely muddy. That's a pretty big color variation from the largemouth that I looked at online. Interesting stuff.

    Largemouth for sure

    But black bass species can and do hybridize

    Fish take on colors of their environment... you may see light colored fish like above or deep dark colorations. It is all in the water....

    Largemouth that hang near grass will be a dark (or sometimes bright) green color. Those around rock or in muddy water will be almost all silver. Their color adapts to their surroundings.

    Yep, largemouth. And by MLF standards, may even be scoreable!!! Congrats on the catch and may tighter lines be with you!

    Spot.. Mouth ends in front of the eye socket. For sure from colored water and scorable.

    You need to look at the hinge of the jaw with the mouth closed. This fishes mouth isn't closed all the way but the red line ID's the furthest point of the jaw hinge on this fish and it is behind the eye. I think you are looking at where the blue line is and that is not the hinge of the jaw. It's a largemouth.

    LOL, I don't even know what y'all are talking about. I am just messing around because I have been too busy with work to make it to the beach-have always been a saltwater fisherman. I don't eat freshwater fish, so I am 100% catch-and-release when fishing that. I just like to measure for reference when I take a picture. I always start my measurement at 1", although it looks like I got excited and was off by an eighth or so here.
