    I've been fishing in Florida for years and I've never caught one of these. Caught it about 15 mins. ago in the pond behind my house.

    Damn, I posted this in the wrong forum. Thought I was in Chat, guess this will be moved soon.

    Anyway, it's not a smallmouth. I've caught those before. Here's another look.

    Oh yeah, didn't think about Tilapia. They are a hugely popular fish for fish farms now. I imagine they are definitely popular enough to get mixed in with stocking etc...

    Unless I am mistaken Tilapia are Herbivors and don't come to bait. We used to fowl hook them w/heavy spoons near the outlet of a powerplant in the winter.

    My vote is Crappie/Brim/Perch...call it what you will they are basically interchangeable.
