Was down in Florida (Weekie Watchee) last week at my parent's house. They live in the Glen Lakes area & have a fresh water pond right in their backyard. It's connectewd to several other ponds. Saw a lot of fish activity & tried casting a small spinner lure into the pond & low & behold I hook a small fish. Not being overally familar with freshwater fishing I was wondering if anyone could identify what I caught.

Fish was about 10 inches in lenght & had a green coloring to him. Looked a little like a seabass.

I suspect it was some kind of bass - perhaps large or small mouth. Eventually hooked several of them all about the same size.

All were released - anyone have any idea what they may have been?

Unforetunately - no pictures. I know they stock the ponds - so it was definately "introduced". Best decription I can give is:
resembled a sea bass
sides were bright - but not - deep green

Well - I was down there again catching them one after another on an artifical grub with a spinning blade attached.

Local sportsman showed up & identified them for me - large mouthbass.

Fun to catch on real light tackle. Would have been perfect for fly fishing. Saw one come out of the water to grab a dragonfly that was hovering about 6 inchs over the water.

Hey Flysully - you reading this? If you end up in Weekie Wachee (a town that could only exist in Florida & the land of the mouse) mail me & I'll give you the location.
