1.5 lb. White Bass caught by Henry V fishing on Friday March 12, 2010 at 11:15 near Chapel Hill in Orange County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a jig

One of the smaller White Bass I caught today, but she was gracious enough to strike a classic pose with my rod and reel before I put her back in the water.

It's a Shimano Sahara 4000 reel. The rod is a Fenwick Ventura, 7'. It's my standard Bowfin rod, with my back up reel. The line is 40# Fireline. It holds up well on the rocks and doesn't fray as much. The rod/reel are far too heavy for White Bass, but just right for big Bowfin. Unfortunately, the Bowfin weren't interested in my lures.

The Hybrid stiper is a sterile mix of a striped bass and this white bass. Nice Rod I would put a but cap on it myself. Is that a Shimano ? Stradic reel??

Albert,

You are right, but the family Perciformes from which the word "perch" derives contains hundreds of species. The White bass belongs to a particular genus that includes stripers and yes, white perch. Yellow perch, by contrast, are more closely related to walleye than to white perch. You can see the difference in the markings - white bass and white perch have horizontal dotted lines, while yellow perch and walleye have vertical bars.

I'll say this, too - White bass definitely fight harder than white perch.
