no orange and the bars looks like a white sea bass. I could be wrong but just sayin and that looks like a spotted bay bass. You may want to take a closer look next time. Bay bass are a slower growing fish than a sand bass.
Come on now let cut them some slack. Dont we all go out and catch,kill and post pics of our short fish. Uh NOT. These guys should list their address so we can all send them a copy of the regs. That white looks like it was just released from the pen.
Go to the fish and wildlife service and print out the regs and photos so you don't make this mistake again. Im sure it was unintentional but you should know the regulations it you go fishing. Be prepared for a bashing.
