I caught several of these awhile back when me, MJ, Charger, and Robin floated the Nolichucky. I was just looking through my gallery and i've wondered about this since then. What does this look like to you all? A spot, or a LM? Cuz they were pretty good size for spots which is why I kinda thought they may have been LM, but I never thought to look on their tongue at the time.

Yeap, Nice Spot Bubba! They get big down in georgia and places. up to 5 lbs. Spots are beautiful! Love the color patterns.

That is a very nice spot Bubba. Many people count on that patch of teeth on the tongue but that can be deceiving cause I have seen large mouths with that patch also. I use the jaw bone and dorsal fins to seperate out my spots...........
I had a guy ask me one time what a Spotted Kentucky bass is and I said it's simple. You take 70% of the coloring of a Largemouth bass and you insert that into the other 30% of a smallmouths mean attitude and you have a spotted bass.......................

I like that answer there's a lot of spots where I fish in the river most people think there large mouths until I show them the difference
