Fished LA this evening from Quinlan Park.  Only one small (really small) bass caught with a weightless senko.  The current was fair so we wondered if the dam was releasing water.

Near dusk we noticed some fish feeding on the shoreline, so I rigged up a classic worm on a hook with bobber.  Caught this one which seemed odd.  It was PURPLE with a YELLOW gill.  It does not look like a bluegill,  redear, or longear.  Is this just a color varriation during spawning?

Re: Lake Austin - 3/30/10 - Can you identify this fish?

Pretty hard to tell exactly with the flash from the camera, but it really just looks like a funky colored Bluegill to me. It'd be easier to tell exactly without the light reflection. Pretty little fish though...

Perch crossbreed so you get alot of color variations like that one, they also become less colorful when they're deeper and not exposed to sunlight. If you feel like using live bait, that size make great DINNER for big largemouth and catfish!
