The Largemouth Bass. Just mention the name of this fish and anglers will go glassy eyed with reverence. Words like exciting, aggressive, exhilerating, hard-fighting, and tenacious will always be heard. "Old Bucketmouth", as it is known, is the #1 gamefish in the United States, and with good reason. Everybody likes bass fishing, but did you know you can catch tons of bass without all the crazy equipment and technology that professional bass fishermen use? It's true, and let me tell you, fooling a largemouth with a simple fly or a live frog, while wading or kayaking through the weedy shallows, is a hell of a lot more fun than cranking them in from the deck of a massive, glittering, exhaust-spewing monstrosity of a modern bass boat. I mean, come on, people - bass are easy to catch. If you need all that commercial crap to catch them, then you must be a pretty bad fisherman.
