hey i wanted to ask how big does a smallie usually get because i caught a 24' bass i guess it was weighing about 6 lbs. i know for sure it was not a black bass because i have caught plenty of those. this thing was bronze goldish color with black eyes. i just think it was kinda big for a smallie. this is a picture of the head. i have caught some small bass with those crazy looking eyes around here just not that big.. i just want to make sure this is a smallie

That is a Largemouth or "Black Bass". Their coloration varies depending on the depth and color of the water they were in.

You can tell from the mouth that it is a Largemouth. Besides, they're aren't any lagemouth in your part of the state. They generally live in cooler waters than Lagemouth do. It's a nice Largemouth though. :)

That's a largemouth as well. I doubt there are smallmouth in that lake, because from the looks of it it is muddy and shallow which is usually not good habitat for smallmouths. The current world record is 11 pounds and 15 ounces, caught in Tennessee.

OK  i just thought they weren't largemouths because compared to the ones if have caught in amistad you cant see the stripes on them and they are not as black, they have this goldish color to them... oh and those orange eyes too.. some of them not all.... the ones in amistad are darker and you can really see their stripes... i guess it does depend on the water and stuff. this is another most of them look like this in this lake... and there is no record of stocking smallies just largies
