At just a few pounds and roughly 14 inches in length at full maturity, it’s not one of the larger bass, he said.

So, a population of spots that got segregated for a few thousand years.

I heard some fellas talking about catching Kentucky bass in the Amite river. Is that another type of largemouth?

Why do they continue to put money into researching a fish enough to find out they are not all spotted bass. He'll I can't tell the difference of any of the bass.

So I'm confused - the 'Choctaw' is a new species of bass (linked) but they've been caught in Petite Amite (by posters here) without anyone knowing that they weren't Spotted bass.

Da Fuk?

i think they (scientist) just realized that this wasn't the same species as a spotted bass.

I think that was a side bar question about Kentucky bass/ spots. Caught me for a minute too.

Yeah, I kinda feel the same way. I guess it's nice, from a scientific point of view, to discover more diversity of life in our waters, but to me, it's just another largemouth bass in the same way that shellcracker, bluewhistlers, bluegill, and redear are all just bream.
