Species I.D. Help

Caught this on a small inline spinner. Caught 3 of them and saw some much bigger ones cruising around. They look white in the water

    Blue tilapia. Net them, gig them, bowfish them, or get them eating bread and then use that. In some lakes where there is not much algae they will hit lures, but usually only the smaller ones. I've caught them to around 8 lbs.

    Depending on your location and approach to using as bait, that might not be legal -- in many cases live possession of exotics is restricted. No problem using them as dead/frozen bait.

    True, you can not transport any live exotic species in Florida.

    saw a huge one in a canal in sunshine ranches, ignored the crappie jig I kept tossing in his direction yet chased down tiny minnows =/ they look albino in the water.
    There's no such thing as too much bait!
