    Ya might slip on over to the 'Tilapia problem:' thread, and tell 'em how ya caught it.:wink:

    And yes, they are good eatin'. If (and god forbid) I run out of fish, I go get some, and fry 'em up. Almost as good as bluegill.

    Definately a tilapia! We used to raise them in aquaculture in school, and they are very good eating. There's a local place called Sutton Lake where they say they still catch a few, but I haven't gotten one yet. And at 2.5lbs. it was just a little one!

    Very nice Tilapia, it looks like a Crappie.

    If you are thinking this is the same fish as the one you posted on in 'what kind of panfish is this ,You have shown two different types of fish . The first was a bluegill and this is ,as you noted a talapia ,both very different .

    I'd say tilapia. I saw a bunch of them at Saddle Creek Park between Lakeland FL and Auburndale FL when I was visiting my uncle.
    They are very tasty.
