    How many of you have used this series of bait called Yum? I've been trying this stuff out and it seems okay for the time being. Here's a picture of a 3lb 3oz large mouth caught a few weeks back. I've mainly been using the bait shown in the right corner plus another type that's a solid pumpkin green.

    }

    That's a large mouth bass. No small mouths in my part of South Florida.

    FYI.....

    http://www.thecontentwell.com/Fish_Game/SM_Bass/SM_Bass_Basics.html

    smallmouth bass basic even tells the same thing that small mouths are not a norm in FL & LA. Why ? I don't know.

    Per my neighbor that works in FWC, the smallmouths are stock normally in private lakes & ponds more centrally and north florida. The common bass here in my parts are Largemouth, Sunshine, & non-native Peacock bass.

    The Northern areas ( panhandle and GA border ) have on rare ocassion the sunwanee bass and a few others bass. Largemouth is the game fish for the FL, plentiful in almost all waters.

    BUT they get kinda boring and the small mouths surely put up more of a fight .

    10-4.

    All the largemouths here have the distinguishing greenish stripe going down their side.

    My fault...didn't mean to step on toes. ;)

    No problema...

    All of the smallmouths I've caught have the veritcal stripes and all of the largemouths have the horizonal blotches or nothing. Also the smallmouths are one tough fighter. The largemouth other than it size is a "***** cat" fish.

    I perfer smallmouths since you get more than just a 10sec fight,but you have to be out of Florida for that kinda of fishing ;f

    btw: that picture shown is one of the largest I caught this year. Alot of smaller ones (12"-14") and so far I haven't gotten a good trophy fish yet. Fishing for bass has really suck so far.

    No kidding. I fish on the Shenandoah River and it has both. I'll take the smallie any day of the week!

    Fishing has suffered on the river since the drought 3 years ago but before that we were pulling out 19 1/2" smallies using a 4 1/2" berkely pumpkinseed lizard on a carolina rig. Now that was fun! ;f
