Guess that fish

Discussion in 'Southwest Ohio Fishing Reports' started by CatBassCrap, May 28, 2008.

  1. Ok I caught a couple of these today down at GMR. I know that you're probably going to tell me that it's a smallmouth, but it just didn't look like one. The eyes were bright red and the mouth was thick. Sorry for the crappy phone camera pictures.

    Could be a type of rock bass.

  6. I knew everybody was going to day that. It just didn't look like the regular smallmouth. Something was different about it. I'm probably just trying to convince myself that I discovered a new type of fish. Thanks for the help.

    I keep a Kentucky Fish Identifier PDF file on my computer that has great pictures and info on midwest fish. It identifies one of the smallmouth's nicknames as the redeyed bass, so the red eyes are probably more common than we think.

    Think of fish are like dogs. Every dog, whether it is a schnauzer, poodle, or a lab is under the species Canis lupus, and look how different they all look. It's just the genetcci traits that are passed on that make the individuals different, whether it be size, color, etc. That make any sense?
