Well seems that everything is for mainly freshwater and most topics are based around largemouth/smallies/spots, usually the main discussion points. Also probably why they created an Other Species Forum.

For the most part BASS = largemouth, smallmouth and Kentucky bass (spots).

We have a seperate section for smallmouth "just because". Actually fishing for 

smallmouth can be quite a bit different than largies and a big part of the country

doesn't have the species.

 

Stripers and peacocks are "Other Fish".

Makes sense. However, I see no reason to lump a stripe in with "Other Fish". Your gonna hurt their feelings by doing this.

What about:

White Bass

Hybrid Bass

Ibanez Bass

Chilean Sea Bass

Antarctic Bass

European Bass

Peacock, striped, white, and sea bass are not bass. "True" bass are actually sunfish. When people say "bass fishing", they mean "true" bass that are in the sunfish family. Kind of like a Koala Bear isn't actually a bear even though it has bear in its name. It is actually a marsupial. You cant lump striped and peacock bass in with bass fishing because its not bass fishing.

Correct me if I'm wrong. Is believe a large mouth and spotted bass are both scientifically referee to as black bass.

Smallmouth are considered black bass as well. Black bass and true bass are one and the same.  Black bass are: LM, SM, Spotted, Redeye, Shoal and all of their sub-species and they are all members of the sunfish family with bluegill, pumpkinseed etc.

Marsupial? Gotta admit, I scrambled to google that one. :eyebrows:

 

 

 

Most people are very unconvinced when I tell them this.   :eh:        Google is great isn't it? It can validate or disprove any claim in a matter of seconds.

It's snook not sea bass, but no one is really interested in "other species".  The one good thing about fishing for snook and peacocks, we do it 12 months of year, but they don't fight too hard so you ain't missing much waiting for the ice to thaw.
