      Doesn't looked like a white bass, like we have! I'm guessing it's a white perch! 🎣🐟

      Yeah! Just leafed through the free DGIF fishing booklet and it lists Kerr as top waterways for white bass. But after reading their descriptions of the 2 fish, I'm ...more definitely leaning back to perch too. Either way, apparently white perch is really a bass and is familiar to white and striped bass, so I think it's okay either way! Lol

      well im no expert but still looks like a perch to me. all the white bass I've ever caught were a little thicker through the body, a littler more silver to yellowish ...more and faint stripes.

      Hey Tod, I changed the photo to show another angle of the fish. Mind seeing if it still looks like a perch to you?

      That's what I thought but then the husband looked up a bunch of stuff online about comparisons between the 2, so then I figured it was a bass. I'll switch ...more the label back to perch 👍 Glad someone finally helped ID it though!! 😅👍

  5. There were so many large bass jumping around my boat I almost had a heart attack it was beating so painfully! Nabbed this one and then lost the next one right as ...more I got him next to the boat. God is good 🎣🚣‍♀️ Had a lot of bites from smaller fish but the 360 Search Bait was too big for any of them. I am satisfied with at least one from this vacation. 👍
