Recently, i was fishing in Lake Geneva, Wisconson. We were fishing for walley with jigs but kept catching these unusual looking bass. They were like a mix of a largemouth and a smallmouth but they had unusual red eyes. If anybody knows what we were catching i would be grateful to know.thanks.

they were about 9 inches and didn't way even a pound. i know for sure they were definately not rock bass.

Warmouth are often called rock bass and and look similar.
rockbass have six anal spines, warmouth have three
maybe you got some type of hybrid smallies, used to hear about mean mouth bass , cross btw large and small mouth. maybe a spotted bass. actual redeye bass are supposed to be a southern fish
good luck

I believe thos fish are mean mouth bass, I have been catching a lot of them here in Missouri. they are usualy a cross between a Kentucky spotted bass and a small mouth. they are definately a neet fish.
