    The problem with species identification in most Texas reservoirs is confusing white bass with hybrid stripers. I find the tongue patch difference rather confusing. Perhaps somewhat more reliable is the series of horizontal stripes. The only one that goes all the way to the base of the tail in white bass is along the lateral line. Hybrids have several stripes that extend all the way to the tail.

      If you follow the link in the story there is info on the hybrid/striper ID as well.
