I just realized that TN record for coosa bass is 1 pound 15 ounces. I have caught a couple here on the big south fork that I believe would have came very close to that. I could be wrong with what i'm calling a coosa bass though, in the pictures on TWRA they look more like smallmouth. The ones that I have caught kinda look more like a bright colored spotted bass with red eyes. There is very few places in TN that have coosa bass, the cumberland platue was stocked with them in the 50's which means the big south fork. I catch a bunch of them in the more slack water here on the river. Seem like they get more big around than they do length wise. Is this a coosa bass or are there some spotted bass with red eyes? As soon as I catch one this year I will post it on here.
