The silver largemouth bass - a new species?
« on: October 22, 2006, 04:07:50 PM »

Okay, so it isn't a new species, but some type of pigment problem - probably a lack of pigment actually on this silver largemouth bass caught from a lake along with some of those regular green bass we all know and love. Doesn't appear to be a full albino, but interesting.

You have to be impressed that the bass survived this long since fish that stand out usually get eaten early in life. These young anglers had a good day bass fishing including catching this 'silver' largemouth (I don't have a problem with keeping a few fresh fish to eat, which is what they did, especially when it comes to our younger anglers - and yes, I blurred out their faces because I do not have written permission from parents to show them - notice though... I did not blur out the hat on the far right ;D).


Anyone here ever catch a bass like this... or another interesting bass? I have seen a golden largemouth bass before too.

I do have an apparent handicap talent - I catch a lot of one-eyed bass (no wooden fins). I forgot, I've also seen pictures of a couple orange largemouth bass over the years too.

The whole problem lies in the young child on the right wearing the UM hat.  ;D I'm sure deep down the root of the problem begins there.  ;)

I think most football coaches say that about their schedule. So it could be Woody Hayes, Bo Schembec@#@!#%, etc.

Most recently Lloyd Carr wants ND removed from their schedule. I understand why the past 5 years, but after this season, he should reconsider that. That was a pretty good game for his club.
