Bass fishing in the USA.

I think the nearest Ranger dealer is in central France. Harrods aren't what they once were. LOL

Welcome to the forums ! To further muddy the water, there is Florida . We have our own names for fish here. Crappie are speckled perch or just " specks " to the locals. Bream are all the panfish species here i.e Ā Bluegills, copperheads ( some in other regions call them coppernose sunfish ) , fliers,Shellcrackers ( redear sunfish ) stumpknockers,redbreasts, longears ,and warmouth perch.Largemouth bass are actually in the sunfish family.There are a few sub- species here ,suwanee bass,redeye, and northern and florida strain largemouth. When I was growing up , most people around here called them black bass. There are also white bass,striped bass,and sunshine bass,which is a hybrid of the former two.

Plenty of fish to catch here, and they are all good to eat ,including the catfish ,and all the saltwater fish ! šŸ˜‰ The bass arent quite as good as the others mentioned , so I usually release them. But not always !

I used to go to London and Paris for 2 weeks each a year for work back in the 80s, back then you could buy a string of polo ponies or such there. I opted for aĀ titanium Mont BlancĀ®, gold Dupontā„¢ lighter, and a cricket bat. The seats on the SST were cramped, and it could have used more sound dampening insulationĀ ... (Don't judge, it was the 80s...)

Here in IN a freshwater drum is a white perch.Ā  Boy are we confused.

Where I grew up in Wisconsin a freshwater drum was called a sheepshead (or a goat).
