A Roanoke Bass??

I grew up catching "red eyes" , aka Rock Bass. Now, living in another state, it's came to my attention that there is a separate species here that gets a little bigger and looks a little different. Who knows? Still looks like a red eye to me, but maybe not. I'll have to look into how to tell them apart...


  1. Whatever it turns out to be, still a nice fish.

    1. He was fun! The older I get , the more I appreciate flat fish , just for the amount of leverage they get in the water. That fish , at howevermany inches he was , fought about 3 times as hard as a bass or trout or other slender bodied fish of a similar length. I like it.


Let's hear what YOU have to say...
