What makes smallmouth fight harder

Recommended Posts

then largemouth pound for pound. I think it might be because they are tired of being called small. ;)

In all seriousness don't you just love how these bad boys fight. I can't waite until I can get me a few pigs this spring.

The fish found its niche in nature in fast current. The tail is proportionately bigger than a largemouth and over time smallmouth have evolved stronger swimming muscles than their cousins. The fish is built for speed and contoured for current. River smallmouth spend most of their life "working out".

Why it has a "small mouth" remains a mystery.

I fish for largemouth because there are more of them, but pound for pound, smallmouths fight a LOT harder than largemouths.

If I can paraphrase Will Rogers, I never met a smallmouth that I didn't like. Even the dinks fight hard. Just a super fish.
