    Little fella was just hungry.  He saw his chance, and he took it!  Tried to take you down!   
    Kind of reminds of of a "Broomtail" I had on my line on Maui...also known as a Scrawled Filefish.  I didn't land mine, unfortunately.  This is a picture I found online:

    (FND18) Hybrid Black Bass (Micropterus mutticus):
    Lower flank stripes of a spotted bass, but brown, and no lateral line stripe.  Not a smallmouth bass, smallies don't have those lower flank stripes.   So...Hybrid.

    (FND17) Saugeye (walleye/sauger hybrid)  (Sander sanderson) I've caught walleye and sauger from this spot, so I'm sure this is a naturally-produced hybrid....my first Saugeye on a fly rod!

    That's a speck. No sorry it's a calico bass. But could be a papermouth.

    Dang....seems like I've seen those before.  Been a long time, though...  Is it a Tish?  Pish?  Hmmmm....something like that.  Maybe somebody else knows what it is?  Sish?  Opossum? Jackalope?  Goggle-bream? 😬

    Must be on Truman. Stumbled into a brush pile or three full of these critters, and gogs. Plus a few little spots.
    Some really good crappie hanging out around the older dock floats.

    I think that I saw one Jaguar guapote in the canal park where we didn't get a bite. It swam off pretty quickly, but very different looking fish than what we saw later in the glades. We never found any jewelfish which I would have thought had been common throughout that area.

    Jeff I agree with you and Dave that this is a nice warmouth.

    What is the difference between a warmouth and goggle eye and/or a rock bass?

    Northern rock bass, ozark bass, and shadow bass are all part of the Ambloplites genus.
    Photo of N rock bass. The rock bass all have the spotting along their sides. I think that they tend to be more blocky in their body shape.

    The warmouth is part of the Lepomis genus (bluegill sunfish, redear sunfish, longear sunfish, etc.). They look similar to rock bass but more closely to green sunfish. The warmouth have the lines radiating from the front of their face and a larger opercular flap. Their body shape is rounder than the rock bass.

    I saw, but didn't catch, Jaguar Guapote's in FL.  Not sure if I saw a Midas Cichlid or not...they are around Miami area somewhere.

    Caught this dude in one of the Bella Vista lakes today.  Got snagged on a brush pile, got over it to pull it off, and lo and behold it's off the snag and there's a fish on.  Thought it was another brainless bass, but turned out to be this dude, which I believe is a warmouth.  If so, by far the biggest one I have ever caught.  Species guys feel free to weigh in.
    Could've done a better job with the pic.  But here it is:
