    You need to lift for a while, like a couple years, and build up some lean mass. Eat at around maintenance and lift hard. Follow a good program and progressively overload your lifts.

    5'11 150 and that physique means you don't have nearly enough muscle to look like someone who lifts lean. I'm 5'9 and about 165lb in my avi for reference.

    I have been lifting for a while, but had an hand sugery a few years ago, but outside of that I have been lifting for about 2 years straight now

    My lifts are
    bench 195 6 reps
    squat 225 for 7-8
    deadlift 305 for 7


    will eating at maintence actually bulid muscle optimally as opposed to bulking?

    At maintenance or slightly above is enough to grow usually. Maintenance for recomp where your body uses energy from fat to fuel growth. A slight surplus would probably be better for you, but keep it slight to minimize fat gain.

    Basically eat as close to maintenance as possible, and when your lifts stall, slightly increase the calories.

    Honestly, those lifts are better than I expected with your stats of 5'11 150lb and that photo. Try to lift for hypertrophy, not just strength. Sometimes a lower weight in the 8-12 rep range is better for growth. AT 5'11 you should be closer to 170-180 lean.
