I'm sure most on here know the difference but I came across this today. Not sure if this has been shared before but thought I would just in case.

I'd never heard of a Palmetto before so I looked it up. It appears it's another case of same fish different name. That graphic is probably from up north as I'd never heard of a Wiper before either. It's a Striper/White hybrid as well. I guess they also call them sunshine bass in some areas too.

Here is one from TPW - https://tpwd.texas.gov/regulations/outd ... tification

There is a difference between Palmetto and Wiper. I know the difference is whether the male or female was the white bass. One is female white bass and male striper and the other is male white bass and the female stripper, but I cannot recall which name they give to which combination. Both are "hybrid stripers" though.

I looked it up and I was partially wrong. Wiper is just another term for hybrid striped bass that encompasses both combinations of who's the daddy and who's the momma.

Palmetto bass is female striper roe fertilized by male white bass milt.

Sunshine or Cherokee bass are white bass roe fertilized by striper milt.

so it's one of those "who's your daddy" situations then.

I've never looked at the back side of a fish's tongue to determine species...or determine the sex of said fish...
