You guys that enjoy fishing for those green trash fish every figure out how to catch 3-4 lb spots consistently and you'll change your mind about them. Those big spots are completely different from those 12 inchers. Most people just don't know how, when and where to Target the big ones.
    They may look at me like that, true, if they are uneducated about fish genetics. And I take the word of field biologists over locals every time. Knowledge isn't a bad thing.
    And to call our native largemouth trash fish is funny to me. The most popular game fish in America..lol And you call it a trash fish? Sounds like you have a vendetta against them..lol

    I'm not getting into a ******* contest......but if you've fished badin for that long then you should've known that it is full of bluebacks.

    Good for you. I'm concerned with my experiences, you can believe whatever biologist you'd like. It's a free country.

    After traveling all over catching loads of big smallies and spots ..... largemouth become all but obscelete. I still love the green ditch pickles, but a 2.5 lb spot/smallie will pull a 5 lb largemouth across the lake. Ans you don't have to fish all day or for days on end to find one.

    Spotted Bass are horrible, and largemouth are the king of all bass. That is my story, and I'm sticking with it. Seeing that Jordan now has Alabama bass, yet another river largemouth fishery will be destroyed. Thanks to the selfish moron who illegally stocked these fish in Jordan.

    According to what I've read, yes. Kerr and Gasto will have them soon since they're in the Dan.
