Default Hallo from Idaho...

I was doing some research trying to figure out if the different colors of my bass in my biggest pond were potentially two different types of bass and stumbled across this site.

It looked interesting and so I joined...

I have five man made ponds here on my farm and the largest is chock full of some very good sized large mouth bass. In years past while fished quite a bit, all my fishing has been fly fishing for trout in streams, so I do not know much about bass.

Having a pond full of them it seemed not only interesting but wise to learn more about them. This pond also has bullhead catfish in it as well, when we first bought the farm we were told that pond did not have fish in it anymore so we netted the catfish from the big pond next to our house and transported them to all the other ponds.

I am here to learn more about bass and bass fishing... Not that fishing them here is much of a trick, the average time between casting and a fish on is generally about 30 seconds here and often times just a bare shiny hook is enough to catch one.

I have just been noticing some differences in the fish that I am catching here, the darker ones seem to get all the way up to about 30 inches, but the lighter colored green ones seem to max out at about 15 to 16 inches or so, I was wondering if they might be two different types of large mouth bass or whether they may go through some kind of transition in color as they mature maybe? I also wondered if maybe there might be some mutation that has caused a difference, I have noticed that a number of my catfish have a loss of pigmentation in splotches and patches here and there.
