Roanoke hybrid

Probably an escape from a fish farm.  The below is a hybrid striped bass.  cross between a white bass and a striped bass.  It's more to it than the broken lines, many true blood stripers have a few broken lines, nobody is perfect.  They also have a taller profile than a striper, more like a white perch.  Different patches of tongue teeth if you really want to get technical.....I was pretty sure, but this fish was confirmed by Pete Kornegay, I'll take his word for it.
