I don't remember ever seeing anything in the conservation codes that say you can't take a picture of your catch regardless of whether it's "legal" or not. I've released unharmed more fish in a season than alot of people catch in a lifetime so please hold your comments about how I should conduct my business and worry less about mine and maybe a little more about yours.

WRENCH.....i may have confused something in my interpertation ,but not certain of that. I know what it says about 4 over 18 inches.  I also know that the MDC pinches people for things the code does not clearly state.  They will tell you the code tells you what you can do. If its not stated you cannot do it. Now when I read that it said 4 over 18. There is nothing said about anything else. So by there ways of doing things your limited to 4 over 18. Anything smallef would be illegal.

Nope.   

The difficulty for most folks to tell the difference between a White bass and a juvenile hybrid is why it is regulated that way.  You are allowed 15 daily whether they are whites or hybrids UNLESS they are over 18". And you are allowed 4 of those (most likely hybrids....but I have caught 19" pure Whites).

The stripe below the hard lateral stripe has never failed me yet.  It's way quicker to tell that way I think. 

This is just a big White.

This is a pure Striper

A Hybrid has more than one line going completely to the tail.
