Bass was my guess, too. But I haven't seen many juvvies. I'd say raise it and see what it looks like.

I've kept sunfish and rock bass, they make great aquarium fish. Yours looks like a smallmouth or possibly a largemouth bass; they are very similar when very young. If it is, it will grow a lot larger than any sunfish. If you decide to keep it and it IS a bass then be ready for it to grow fast and large...like 18-24 inches!
I too am mystified as to how this fish would be in with feeder goldfish.
This is a very interesting thread- please keep us posted and good luck!

It does kind of look like a small mouth bass. But hard to tell from the picture.
I caught a baby one once while fishing. He hit a Hopkins Spoon that was bigger than him.
I took him home and put him in my 20 gal show tank. Fed him feeder goldfish. He was such a pig he'd put three in his mouth and have one hanging out, had to knock him on the head with the net to make him spit it out.
Raised him up and when I moved cross country, let him go in a pond near the house. Called him ol' brown fish.

I dont think its a bass because it has small squares of blue runing around its body

are you going to feed it or raise it to see what it becomes because it doesn't look like any feeder fish I have ever seen?

What kinds of fish eat feeder fish?

If anyone at the pet store you got him at is very knowledgeable you may try showing them the pictures they may have a guess.
