yea i wasnt sure, its mouth seemed a little small to me and i havnt seen alot of guadalupe, it had a full belly though like it was full of eggs
That's the thing about LA fish. They dine very well. I rarely catch a skinny fish out there. They are chunky! and to be fair the picture is a little blurry, hard to get a good look.

Isn't that a Atlanta Braves hat?

Seeing Bama' fans in your sleep there Auburn? It's ok, some of us Horns fans too :(, hopefully Gilbert is out for revenge! ;D.

Looks like a largemouth to me, but we've seen some odd breed photos on ABF before, wouldn't surprise me if that fish is a little of both.

check the back patch of its tongue. If it's smooth, its a Large mouth. If it has a rough patch, its a guad
Sorry, but this alone is actually an inaccurate way to tell the difference between a largemouth and spot. "Tongue Patch. Spotted bass will have a rough patch on their tongues. It is important not to use this characteristic by itself, because largemouth can have this patch as well." You've got to use a combo of things...

1. Jaw Bone. As mentioned by a few of web site visitors, the jaw bone of a spotted bass does not extend past the eye.
2. Cheek Scales. Scales around the eye area, cheek, are much smaller than the scales along the length of the body. On largemouth, the scales on the ckeek and the rest of the body are similar in size.
3. Tongue Patch. Spotted bass will have a rough patch on their tongues. It is important not to use this characteristic by itself, because largemouth can have this patch as well.
