White bass are biting on the main body of many Texas reservoirs right now.
And to a lesser extent, so are the striped bass.
Can you tell the difference between a white bass and a young striped bass? You better because size limit requirements are different.
According to officials with the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, this is how you do it.
A Stripes faint, only one extends to tail
B Body deep, more than 1/3 length
C Has one tooth patch near the midline towards the back of the tongue
A Stripes distinct, several extend to tail
B Body slender, less than 1/3 length
C Has two, distinct tooth patches near the midline towards the back of the tongue
