Normal variation for Yellow Bass or some kind of hybrid?
Posted 13 June 2014 - 09:57 PM
I caught this guy in a lake where there are typical looking yellow bass.
Is this degree of broken lines within normal variation for yellow bass, especially without the distinct breaks above the anal fin? I haven't seen that before and most every photo online with this much stripe breakage is labelled white/striper hybrid. Maybe I just haven't seen enough yellow bass. The lake officially doesn't have white bass, white perch or wipers in it, but then again it supposedly doesn't have yellow bass either and I know for sure I'm catching them there. At first the lateral line stripe reminded me of a white perch's lateral line, and there are many posts on area fishing forums about white perch now being in all the local lakes. (I'm not suggesting this fish is a white perch hybrid.) (In fact, I'm not suggesting it's anything in particular.)
Just doesn't look like what I'm used to catching from that body of water, and doesn't strike me as a white bass (little to no dorsal gap, for one thing).
