Well, today I caught the first decent sized largemouth of the year, and it was a freak of nature. Perhaps you have heard of Hyperpigmented Melanosis? It is a skin discoloration found occasionally on black bass. It is becoming increasingly common on the Susquehanna, and largemouth in Lake Fork have been caught that are entirely black! It doesn't appear to have any negative health effect, as this is the second bass I have caught with it and both were very strong and very healthy weight wise.
