    I've not heard that one yet lol! I have heard that wether (dojo) loaches were, but I suppose since clowns do get pretty large it makes sense.

    Its only odd for us since to us they are pets. But really though, if its edible then someone is eating it somewhere...

    It was just a random thought, I've not researched yellow perch at all. Just was thinking of what was available locally (at least where my folks live) and was small (plenty of fish that I used to fish for that are a tad big for aquarium... lake trout, salmon, pike...) so the first thing that came to mind was sunfish (in which the pumkinseed looks pretty colorful, and then perch. Probably the smallest thing that I used to love to fish for was brook trout but I think they need much cooler waters. Used to fish them just as soon in the year as there was some openings in the ice over the streams.

    I once saw a huge display tank of low level brackish water with Snook and Bass together. It was awesome.

    BTW, That looks nothing like any Largmouth I've ever caught. I live in Georgia though. maybe it's just a difference in area.
    It was a dart type of tag. I found it at Bass Pro Shops in NC. It had a pack of 20 tags and wasn't that expensive.

    The following link has an example and where to place it.

    My wife> No honey, you can't raise bass and bluegill in the swimming pool. It's not an aquarium.

    Me> Well it "could" be.

Sounds to me by the way you described that it swallowed the hook, The angler who caught the fish did the right thing by cutting the line because if the hook were removed it would be fatal to the fish. The fishes' digestive juices will eat through the hook and it will be just like new. You could cut the line with fingernail clippers as close the hook as you can and it will alleviate most discomfort. I hope i helped, good luck!
    Modern hooks usually don't rust unless they are the very cheap ones. Gullet hooked fish should have the hook removed. The line should be cut and then carefully threaded through the gill. Then the line should be tugged gently to turn the hook so if you look into the fish's mouth the bend of the hook is facing you. Sometimes the hook pops out just from turning it. If not, use longnose pliers and pull the hook out as straight as possible. Leaving a hook in a fish's throat will greatly reduce a released fish's odds of survival. If you think you damage the fish's gullet while removing the hook, you should keep it and eat it as long as it is legal.

    That is absolutely a smallmouth bass. I have 2 rock bass and they are not nearly as long and skinny and the mouth is much much smaller.

    Try using the largest hook possible so that they don't swallow it. I use 1/0 hooks or larger for bass. Smallest I've caught on a 1/0 is a 6 inch bass.

    Fish native to your area need cooler water than your South American fish.

    In the future, if you're going to be releasing the fish, try using circle hooks. They have a 99% rate of hooking through the lip instead of being swallowed. You can also use barbless hooks. I don't have experience with those but heard that they catch fish successfully.
    Oh fish sticks, I'm nauseous.

    All FW Bass are panfish in the family Centrarchidae. True Bass are in the family Serranidae which is SW.

    Agreed. Circle hooks are much easier to deal with than J-bend hooks. They pretty much set themselves for you too.
