Their is no doubt, the Largemouth Bass is the king of "sportfish" in Texas. More people fish for Largemouth Bass than any other species.
That being said, as popular as they are to fish for, they might not be the most popular to fish for on the fly.
Anyway, I digress. I recently stumbled upon this table that I thought you might find interesting, so I wanted to pass it along to you.
Even still, without much information, I find the chart interesting, yet puzzling at the same time. Here are my questions:
- If the odds of your next bass being in the 0-2 pound range are 1 in 2 (50%), then why are your odds of catching a 0-2 pound bass in the next year only 25%? Or is this saying that 25% of your bass over the next year will probably be in the 0-2 pound range? That sounds more accurate (obviously dependent upon the body of water you fish and the "lure/fly" you are throwing.
- I wonder how this chart would change if it was specific to fly fishing, and even more specifically, Fly Fishing in Texas?
- I wonder how this chart would change if specifically targeted monster bass on the fly?
