Three new lifers in one day is pretty good for me!

Nope, I'm guessing they must be finished spawning already.  Not sure if that means they've gone downstream to the Ohio, or if they're still there at the dam, just not in shallow water near shore.

You sure that's a white bass? That's the strangest looking white I've seen. Its got a deep body like a white, but the lines are straight enough to be a pure striper. Most whites have broken lines below the lateral line. I like that partial mirror carp you got. Love those things. I got this one a couple years back.

I'm really puzzled by it.  If it's not a white bass I'll definitely change the post.

Yeah pretty crazy. I cocked my eye at it before I even read what you had written and seems you're confused about it as well. Do you remember what the other stripers you caught looked like?

Garren caught a very normal looking white at the same location.  He caught his first, and then when I caught mine I thought for sure I had a striped bass.

Looks a lot like a striper to me. Multiple stripes extend to tail, where White Bass would be just one.
Stripes unbroken, so doesn't look like the typical hybrid's mess of broken lines.
Can't quite count dorsal rays, but might be 12, which would be more striper than white.
On the other hand, it's got the taller body shape of a White.
Got any close-ups of any part of it? Any chance you looked inside the mouth for tooth patches?
I've caught many White Bass that looked different from the norm, but none that looked that much like a Striped Bass.

I don't have any better photos, but I can crop the original down and post them at a larger size.

I count 12 dorsal rays.
