    I think that I would call all of those whites. It lookes like right above the anal fin on all the ones I can see the lines are broken and depressed down a little, this to me indicates a white bass not a striper

    the one on the lower right is a hybrid striper, a cross between a male sand (white) bass and a female striper. i think hybrids fight harder than sand bass or stripers, and they eat good too. the way you can tell em apart, other than just by looking at the stripes, is the sand bass have a 'v' for a toungue patch, and hybrids and stripers have two parallel lines like this ---> = on their toungue. a game warden showed me that just after i avoided a ticket for having too many hybrids, which i thought were sand bass. in tx, sand bass=25 limit, hybrids= 5 limit.

    The best way to tell hybrids and whites apart are their stripes. Whites' stripes are broken randomly where as all of the hybrids' lines are broken in the same place all the way down.

    Most exellant table fare you have there. Their guts and heads also make great catfish bait.
