Telling a Large Mouth from a Small Mouth Bass

When you know what to look for the two species are easily distinguished one from the other. There is a difference in the general build, the large mouth being a heavier and chubbier fish for his length than the small mouth, and less graceful in appearance. The mouth of the large mouth variety extends a little beyond the vertical line of the eye, while that of the small mouthed species does not extend to the eye line. The eyes differ in color sometimes and those of the small mouth show considerable red while those of the other species do not, but this, like the general coloring is not infallible. The shape of the head differs in all cases, as the small mouthed species has a round forehead and the head of the large mouth is hollowed slightly. There is also a difference in the scales—those of the small mouth are smaller than the scales of the large mouth black bass.

The color of both varies greatly in different parts and various waters and in some the smaller species is darker, while in other places the reverse is true. The color of either may be anything from a pale greenish yellow, almost white in fact, to a very deep green or almost black. They are always darkest on the back. Either species may show transverse or longitudinal markings on the sides. The longitudinal markings are seen most frequently on the large mouthed species.
