GA Bass Slam Bass ID

Thread starter #1
I’m working on the bass slam and i need some help identifying this bass species. I caught this bass in the West Fork of the Chatooga River near Pine Mountain, GA. I was fishing for a Bartram Bass. Thanks for the help. 4FE0EE9B-32C0-42F8-8618-F77766B9BC35.jpeg 727C766E-C44C-4635-8273-CF1670456ABC.jpeg 8C20270B-B4E9-4292-87B3-06FCDFF69216.jpeg
To me it looks to be some sort of hybrid. Submitting to DNR will result in them identifying it for you as part of slam submission. Looks to me to have some Spot in it.
That looks like a shoal bass to me. The truth is, it could be anything in that river and certainly a hybrid largemouth cousin twice removed inbred starving the death, eat anything that swims by bass.

I'd call it a redeye, but I'm no expert.

Thanks for the feedback Fish Hawk. Where did you get picture of the Bass Species of Georgia. Really cool
Was in the prize package when I won the bass slam last year,only two of those pictures have been made,one hangs in the commissioners office and the other in my house.When they had the picture designed they wanted them to be as realistic as possible.Good luck on getting your slam this year!!!
