    That's a smallmouth bass.  Notice that it doesn't have distinct markings running along the lateral line like a largemouth or spotted bass would have, and when its mouth is closed the hinge doesn't extend beyond the eyeball.

    Also, in the future, take the hook out before posing for photos.  Leaving it in makes you one hard flop away from that hook ending up somewhere in your hand.
